Abstract: The X-ray diffraction has revealed that the polycrystalline hexagonal structured alpha-In2Se3 thin films grown at substrate temperature of 200degreesC with the unit cell parameters a=4.03degreesA and c=19.23degreesA becomes polycrystalline hexagonal structured InSe with a unit cell parameters of a=4.00degreesA and c=16.63degreesA by Cd-doping. The analysis of the conductivity temperature dependence in the range 300-40 K revealed that the thermionic emission of charged carriers and the variable range hopping are the predominant conduction mechanism above and below 100 K, respectively. Hall measurements revealed that the mobility is limited by the scattering of charged carriers through the grain boundaries above 200 K and 120 K for the undoped and Cd-doped samples, respectively. The photocurrent (I-ph) increases with increasing illumination intensity (T) and decreasing temperature up to a maximum temperature of similar to100 K, below which I-ph is temperature invariant. It is found to have the monomolecular and bimolccular recombination characters at low and high illumination intensities, respectively. The Cd-doping increases the density of trapping states that changes the position of the dark Fermi level leading to the deviation from linearity in the dependence of I-ph on F at low illumination intensities.
