Nano-crystalline CdTe/CdS thin film hetero-junctions have been grown on glass substrate by thermal evaporation technique. The growth conditions to get stoichiometric compound films have been optimized. The grown hetero-junctions have been characterized for their I-V characteristics. Analysis of I-V characteristics has been made to investigate the current conduction mechanism in p-CdTe/n-CdS hetero-junction. The band gap energy of cadmium telluride and cadmium sulfide films have been computed from the study of variation of resistance with temperature. Based on the study, band diagram for p-CdTe/n-CdS hetero-junction has been proposed.
