Abstract

Thin layers of mercury(II) sulfide have been prepared by a newly developed chemical bath deposition technique. The layers were grown on glass substrates previously coated with a very thin layer of lead sulfide (thickness < 10 nm). The deposition was performed in alkaline media at 65°C from thiosulfate complexes of mercury. X-Ray investigation indicates that the deposited material is a mercury(II) sulfide mixture of two phases, α-HgS and γ-HgS, with α-HgS dominant. The optical bandgap, Eg, was evaluated from VIS absorption spectra and found to have a value of 3.1 eV.
