Title: SHI Induced Modifications in CdS/CuInSe{sub 2} Thin Film: XRD Analysis

Abstract

CuInSe{sub 2}(CIS nanostructured) thin films were prepared by ion exchange method at room temperature on ITO coated glass substrates in an alkaline medium. The as prepared thin films were irradiated by 120 MeV Au{sup 9+} swift heavy ion (SHI) at 5x10{sup 11} and 5x10{sup 12} ions/cm{sup 2} fluence respectively. To study the effect of irradiation, the pristine and irradiated nanostructured thin films were characterized by X ray Diffraction (XRD) and analyzed the improvement in crystalline quality and crystallite size. The observed structural modifications discussed considering the high electronic energy deposition by 120 MeV gold heavy (Au{sup 9+}) ions in CuInSe{sub 2} thin films.
