 Abstract
The electrodeposition in acidic aqueous electrolyte bath of cadmium telluride on gold electrodes has been studied by electrochemical analysis. Conventional cyclic voltammetry using potentiostat is considered as a reliable method to study electrochemical behavior of electrodeposition of CdTe. In this paper, the mechanism of CdTe deposition and its cyclic voltammetry were studied with the Te ion concentration, temperature, potential, and scan rate. We also investigated surface morphologies using FESEM and atomic composition of Cd and Te using EDS. Atomic composition of Cd and Te were varied with Te ion concentration in the electrolyte.
