Zinc sulphide (ZnS) thin films were deposited on soda lime glass substrate using spray technique with a DC voltage (300 V) applied to the nozzle to create an electric field during the spray deposition. Spray deposition of ZnS film under an electric field, resulted in change of the surface morphology, transmission, and enhancement in crystallinity of the film. The band gap of the spray deposited ZnS film was found to be 3.62 eV. Transparent ZnS film with the benefit of large area and low cost spray technique can be suitable for solar cell window layer application.
