Chemical bath deposition (CBD) technique has been used for the deposition of cuins2 film on glass slide at very high temperature in alkaline medium. The deposited film showed both chalcopyrite and wurtzite structure. The values of lattice constants are quite close to the reported values. The grain size determined by Scherrer's formula was 22.8 nm. Morphological study showed that film surface is uniform and smooth. The band gap calculated was 2ev higher than bulk cuins2. PL study showed strong emission peak in IR region.
