    Abstract. Reflectivity studies have been done on nanocrystalline hexagonal CdS particulate films grown by the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique under a floating monolayer of arachidic acid. The band-edge peak (E[sub 0]) in the reflectivity spectra has been found to be blue-shifted with respect to...
