Abstract: Thin films of CdO were deposited onto indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass substrates using electrodeposition method. The pH of the final solutions was adjusted from 4 to 8 and effects of pH on the films were investigated. The maximum film thickness was reached at pH 5 and XRD studies showed that this film had relatively high peak intensities. Optical studies showed that band gap varies between 2.04 and 2.41 eV and depend on pH. The surface morphologies were analysed by SEM images and they revealed that films were deposited compact and there were no voids, cracks or pinholes.
