Magnetron sputtered Cu-Sb metallic precursors were sulphidised on glass and molybdenum/glass substrates at 6 different temperatures. Two techniques were adopted for the elemental sulphidisation process. Precursors sulphidised using evaporated elemental sulphur were successfully converted into Cu3SbS3 solar absorber layers on molybdenum substrates. The as-sulphidised films exhibited p-type conductivity were produced in the limited response when analysed using a Eu+ electrolyte arrangement to measure the photocurrent. The films exhibited an energy bandgap value of 1.84eV.
