Cu2S thin films of well-controlled thickness and stoichiometry were prepared by a solid state reaction between CdS and CuCl films in the temperature range 200-250°C. The Cu2S films exist in the orthorhombic chalcocite phase. The growth of Cu2S on CdS is topotactial, and the chalcocite phase is obtained on reaction with both wurtzite and sphalerite structures of CdS. The electrical and optical properties of the Cu2S films are consistent with the Cu2S composition. These films were utilized to fabricate Cu2S/CdS solar cells.
