Abstract

The electrodeposition mechanism of cadmium selenide, zinc selenide and zinc cadmium selenide thin films from selenosulfite has been investigated based on the results of (i) cyclic voltammetry under dark and illumination, (ii) i-t transients in the plating solution and (iii) compositional analysis of the thin films. While considerable thickness of zinc selenide film could not be deposited, almost stoichiometric cadmium selenide and zinc cadmium selenide films with different phases were deposited at different deposition potentials. The possible mechanism for lack of zinc selenide formation and different phase formation of cadmium selenide and zinc cadmium selenide at various deposition potential has been discussed.
