Thin films of cadmium selenide were cathodically deposited on ITO, molybdenum and stainless steel substrates by short circuiting the substrates to an easily oxidisable metal like aluminium or cadmium in a bath containing cadmium sulphate and selenium dioxide at a pH around 2. The as-deposited films were characterized by X-ray diffraction studies and their composition analysed by EPMA. These films were etched in hydrochloric acid-acetic acid mixture and cuprous selenide layers were grown topotaxially on CdSe layers. The effect of heat treatment on the output of the CdSe:Cu2-xSe Cells as well as their stability is presented
