Optical characteristics of crystalline antimony sulphide (Sb2S3) thin film
AbstractThis paper presents the important optical characteristics of crystalline Sb2S3 film deposited on glass substrate using solution growth technique at 300k. These characteristics were analyzed using PYEUNICAM SP8-100 spectrophotometer in the range of UV-VIS-NIR while the morphology and the structural composition were analyzed using (metallurgical Microscope OLYMPUS BH-2 and Camera) and XRD respectively. The band gap was obtained from the plotted graph of absorption co-efficient against the photon energy. The optical characteristics of the film were manifested on the graphs of the absorbance and transmittance against wave- length.
