Özet

In this study, zinc selenide (ZnSe) thin films were produced on glass substrate by using chemical bath deposition (CBD) method at 80 degrees C, from aqueous solutions of zinc sulphate and sodium selenosulphide, which were produced using solid selenium as the E selenium source. The optical and structural properties of ZnSe thin films were investigated at room-temperature. The pH of the chemical bath, in which ZnSe thin films were immersed, were changed between pH:8-11. Optical properties of the films, including extinction coefficient, refractive index, reflectance, absorbance, transmittance, dielectric constants and optical density values were calculated using absorbance and transmittance measurements determined using a Hach Lange 500 spectrophotometer, in 300-1100 nm wavelength range. Optical bandgap values were obtained from transmittance and absorbance spectra ranged between 2.12 and 2.49 eV. According to XRD results, it was found that the films have polycrystalline structure and they exhibited different film thicknesses depending on phase and pH changes.
