Abstract

Effects of the doping level of indium impurity on electrical and optical properties of the CdS thin films, prepared with solution-sprayed method have been studied. The density of free carriers can be raised to an order of magnitude higher than that of non-doped case by increasing doping level of indium up to 0.01mole-% while indium doping does not significantly change the mobility from its value in non-doped samples. The optical energy gap is decreased with increasing indium content while the thermal activation energy remains unchanged. The experimental results are discussed in terms of the self compensation and radiative recombination phenomena.
