Tin sulfide (SnS) films were prepared by RF sputtering method. The component, crystal structure, optical properties and electrical properties of SnS films were measured. The relationship between the SnS films properties and the sputtering condition was discussed. Using Sb as a dopant and combining thermal annealing at elevated temperatures (about 400°C), the n-type SnS films were obtained.
