Synthesis and properties of mercury selenide films deposited by using pottasium iodide as complexing agent

Mercury selenide (HgSe) films were obtained on glass substrates via the chemical deposition method. The aqueous solutions of mercurium(II) nitrate, potassium iodide and sodium selenosulfate were used. Film samples obtained at two temperatures of synthesis were analyzed by X-ray and structural analysis. The effect of the deposition duration on the optical and morphological properties of HgSe films was investigated. The deposition mechanism was discussed.

The Effect of Different Complexing Agents on the Properties of Zinc Sulfide Thin Films Deposited from Aqueous Solutions

The zinc sulfide (ZnS) thin films were prepared on glass substrates by chemical bath deposition using the aqueous solutions of zinc chloride, thiourea, pH regulator and complexing agent (ammonia and hydrazine hydrate, trisodium citrate or sodium hydroxide). The calculations of boundary conditions for formation of zinc sulfide and zinc hydroxide were made at various zinc salt concentrations with different complexing agents. The structural, morphology and optical properties of the ZnS thin films were investigated.
