Thin films of copper oxide (CuO) were grown on glass slides by using the solution growth technique. Copper cloride (CuCl ) and potassium telluride (K T O ) were used. Buffer 2 2e 3 solution was used as complexing agent. The solid state properties and optical properties were obtained from characterization done using PYE UNICAM (SP6-450) spectrophotometer.
The band gap was computed when the absorption coefficient is zero and ranges from 4.624eV to 6.205eV.
