Abstract: ABSTRACTConditions necessary for the reproducible deposition of pristine In 2 S 3 thin films on TOglass substrates by low temperature solution deposition have been identified. Baths containing carboxylic acids yield adherent, specular and crystalline films, within a defined pH range, dependent on the particular acid employed. Films have been characterised by XRD, SEM, XPS and electronic spectroscopy. As-deposited films were found to crystallise as tetragonal P-In2S3, no evidence for incorporation of hydroxy-i…
