Cadmium sulphide (CdS) thin films were deposited on glass substrate by chemical bath deposition(CBD). The bath-temperature of 80oC and pH = 11 was maintained. The films were characterized by XRD, UV-visible spectrophotometer, Ellipsometer, SEM and Raman spectrum. The film-thickness of 391.1 nm was revealed by Ellipsometry. XRD confirmed the films to be in a mixed phase of hexagonal and cubic structure.UV-VIS spectral analysis yielded a band gap of 2.35 eV. The SEM micrograph exhibits uniform surface coverage and Raman spectrum of the films shows characteristic CdS peaks.
