Tin sulfide (SnS) is receiving increasing interest for its potential application as an absorber layer in thin film solar cells. In this work, a novel method for the formation of SnS layers on soda-lime glass substrates was investigated. The layers were formed by first sputtering tin onto glass followed by annealing in a 5% H2S and Ar gas environment over the temperature range of 300-450°C for 2 hours. The structural properties of the layers synthesized, including the crystal structure, phases present, crystallite size, strain and dislocation density are reported.
