Deposition and characterization of ZnS, Sm2S3 and ZnS:Sm films are described. The films have been prepared by chemical vapor deposition using new volatile complex compounds, dithiocarbamates of Zn and Sm, as precursors. Characterization includes X-ray diffraction, chemical analysis of the film composition, ellipsometry and spectrophotometry. It has been shown that at relatively low temperatures (about 380 °C) monophase crystalline Sm2S3 films can be fabricated. Doping of ZnS by Sm with dopant concentration up to 2 at. % has been achieved. Effects of Sm doping on structural and optical properties of the film are presented.
