CdS films have been grown by laser-evaporation deposition in a clean vacuum environment. The films are highly oriented with a c axis perpendicular to the surface, and are optically smooth and homogeneous. These high quality films should be useful in nonlinear integrated optics applications.

    We studied the formation of the band gap on CdS thin films deposited on glass substrates by chemical bath deposition (CBD) and close spaced sublimation (CSS) techniques. In order to obtain the first stages of films growth, we used small deposition times for both methods. Films growth by CBD were...
