In present report, p-type CdTe semiconductor thin films were grown directly on transparent conductive Fluorine-doped SnO2-coated (FTO) glass substrates using three-electrode electrodeposition technique. The whole work carried out at ambient condition. Structural studies reveal that films are possessing cubic zinc blend crystal structure. The growth mechanism of CdTe nanostructures is revealed by investigating the cyclic voltammetry analysis. Morphological characterization demonstrates high-purity, uniform and well covered CdTe thin film over FTO glass substrate. The Hot probe experiment confirmed the p-type semiconducting behavior of CdTe thin films. The current investigation provides a novel approach in synthesis of p-type CdTe nanostructure, without any post annealing or surface treatment, for the direct fabrication of semiconductor sensitized solar cells.
