Title: Synthesis of Cu doped ZnS nanostructures on flexible substrate using low cost chemical method

Flexible electronics is one of the emerging area of this era. In this paper we have reported synthesis of Cu doped Zinc sulphide nanostructures on filter paper flexible substrates. Zinc chloride and Thio urea were used as a precursor for Zinc and Sulphur. The structures were characterized by XRD, FE-SEM and UV visible spectrometer. All the peaks identified for cubic structure of ZnS. Appearance of small Cu peaks indicates incorporation of Cu into ZnS lattice. Zns nanostructures assembled as nanobelts and nanofibers as shown in FE-SEM micrographs. Compound Structures provide the reasonable electrical conductivity on filter paper. Absorption in UV region makes them suitable for flexible electronic devices.
