Cadmium sulfide, copper sulfide and zinc sulfide films were grown on Si(111) substrate by successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction method at room temperature. The crystalline structure and morphology of obtained films were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electronic microscope and energy dispersive X-ray analysis methods. The films were polycrystalline and showed preferred orientation. The surface morphology of these films looked relatively smooth and homogeneous in the scanning electron microscope image. The energy dispersive X-ray analysis spectra showed that the expected elements exist in the thin films.
