Abstract: Nanocrystalline thin films of non-stoichiometric CuInS2 have been deposited on glass substrates by chemical bath deposition method. The deposition parameters such as pH of the solution, solution concentration, temperature of the bath, time of deposition etc. have been optimized for obtaining nanostructured films. As deposited films have been annealed at 250 oC in vacuum for 1h. The films were characterized by x-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive x-ray analysis, absorption and transmission spectroscopy. The results are discussed.
