Abstract

In this article, a p-n heterostructure diode was developed by incorporating the synthesised nanocomposite of CuS/PANI into the hallow network of ZnO thin film deposited on the glass substrate, which hitherto not reported. Analyses of the obtained heterostructure were carried out using XRD, FT-IR, UV-Visible and SEM. The penetration, bonding and the interaction of the nanocomposite with ZnO was investigated by the morphological, structural and optical studies. The obtained new hybrid material was found to have very good absorption in near IR region and results obtained supports that it may be used for different nanoelectronic devices.
