Abstract

The growth of cadmium sulfide microcrystallites in borosilicate glass has been studied to optimize absorption features indicative of quantum-confinement effects. A series of samples that contain microcrystallites with average radius of 12 angstrom up to bulklike structure has been produced. The absorption of these samples was examined as a function of temperature, yielding the same thermal red shift as found for the bandgap reduction in bulk CdS crystals. The temperature-dependent absorption spectra of samples showing good quantum-confinement optical properties are presented and discussed.
