A technique called ultrasonical colloid chemistry deposition (UCCD) has been used to produce bar-shaped ultrafine particles (UFP) cadmium sulphide films. UV-visible spectra and electron micrographic characterization results are presented and discussed. The thin films were analyzed by means of grazing incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXD) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Detailed results about the amorphous characterization of the films during room temperature growth and post annealing are given.
