Abstract:

The purification of Cd and S, and the subsequent synthesis of spectrographically pure CdS from the refined elements is described. The growth of large crystals of CdS by the method of vapor phase deposition is discussed. Modifications of apparatus and method are described and illustrated. The results of studies concerning raw materials, sintering, doping, di fusion and heat treating are given. A section dealing with the melting and crystallization of cadmium sulfide and other materials in a pressure melting furnace is presented. The testing an evaluation of cadmium sulfide crystals suitable for solar cells is described. Author
