The voltammetry method of analysis is used to investigate the electrochemical behavior of zinc(II) and thiosulfate (\(\text{S}_{2}\text{O}_{3}^{2-}\)) ions in acidic solutions and their electrochemical deposition onto glass coated with a conductive layer of tin oxide. It is found that electrodeposition conducted according to the two-electrode scheme using the pulse current generated by the industrial alternating current produces sound zinc sulfide deposits. Physical and chemical properties of obtained zinc sulfide films have been characterized by using scanning electron microscope and UV spectroscopy. The "cross-section" method is used to determine the thickness of zinc sulfide film, which is equal to 140–160 nm. The obtained films have n-type conductivity. View Full-Text
