Abstract
Chemically deposited PbS, CuxS and PbS-CuxS thin films possess a range of solar control characteristics suitable for architectural window glazing applications in locations with a generally warm climate or subjected to extreme climates. The possibilities of producing large area coatings with very low capital investment is an inherent attraction of chemical bath deposition technique. This aspect makes the chemically deposited metal chalcogenide films as a low-capital alternative to the commercially available magnetron sputtered metallic coatings in the production of solar control glazings.
