Abstract

Antimony doped CdTe thin films have been prepared by stacked elemental layer (SEL) method. The X-ray diffraction spectra have demonstrated that the structure of the annealed films are polycrystalline in nature and mixed CdTe and Sb2Te3 phases have been observed at high annealing temperature (500 °C). The increased texture coefficient has been observed for planes (311) and (220) rather than (111) plane of CdTe in annealed stack (Te/Cd/Sb). Transmission spectra have been recorded and the calculated band gap lies between 1.45 and 1.68 eV. A pronounced PL spectrum has been noticed at 532 nm and depicted the presence of nano size particles in annealed thin films.
