Optical Charactterization and Fractal Dimensional Analysis of CdZnS Thin Films

Authors(3) :-Ritu Shrivastava, S. C. Shrivastava, Priyanka

Using chemical bath deposition technique, cdzns thin films has been prepared on glass substrates. Room temperature photoluminescence analysis in the 400-700 nm emission wavelength ranges for the excitation energy 365nm show the green emission band related to exciton-donorcomplexes formed in presence of S / excess Cd are observed in the PL emission spectra of different cdzns films. Some properties related to nanocrystalline effects are also found. The influence of variation of ratio of cadmium and sulphur was studied on the PL emission intensity of cdzns thin films. Fractal dimensional analysis is also very useful in the characterization of thin films. In this paper characterization of thin film has done by fractal dimensional analysis of Atomic Force Microscope image of cdzns thin film.
