CdTe:Cu films were grown by pulsed laser deposition on Corning glass slides at a substrate temperature of 300 °C. The thin films were grown using CdTe and Cu2Te powders, varying the Cu2Te concentration from 3 to 10 wt. %. The structural, compositional, optical, and electrical properties were analyzed as a function of the nominal copper concentration. X-ray diffraction shows that films have CdTe cubic phase. The compositional analysis indicates that CdTe:Cu films grown with lower Cu content have Te excess, on the other hand, films with higher Cu content have Te deficiencies. The electrical measurements showed that CdTe:Cu films grown with low Cu content present lowest resistivity.
