MORPHOLOGICAL AND ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF CDSE THIN FILMS PREPARED BY THERMAL EVAPORATION TECHNIQUE

In this work , CdSe thin films with different thickness (100 and 200) nm have been prepared at RT by thermal evaporation technique on glass substrate under vacuum of 10-5 mbar. These films have been annealed to different annealing temperatures (423,473 and523) K. The morphology structure of the films has been examined using atomic force microscope (AFM) analysis. AFM measurements showed that the average grain size values of CdSe thin films decrease with increasing of annealing temperatures from (RT-523K). While the average grain size values increase with increasing thickness. The electrical properties of these films were studied with different thickness and annealing temperature. The d.c. conductivity for all deposited films decreases with increases of annealing temperatures. The electrical activation energies Ea1 and Ea2 found to decrease with increasing of thicknesses. While increase with increasing of annealing temperatures. From Hall effect result, it is found that the carriers concentration increase with increasing of annealing temperatures. While decrease with increasing of thickness. Hall mobility, drift velocity, carrier life time and mean free path decrease with increasing of thickness and annealing temperatures
