Chemically Deposited EUX Thin Films: A Morphological Study
The Europium chalcogenide (EuX) thin films have been deposited bare glass substrates by chemically with spray
pyrolysis technique at different substrate temperatures, in aqueous medium. The films synthesized were studied
morphologically. The effect of substrate temperature on morphological properties has been investigated. The XRD studies
reveal that, the films are polycrystalline in nature and the deposited material was europium sulphide. The SEM analysis
conforms the formation of small grains on overall substrate.
