Very intense room‐temperature photoluminescence has been observed near 1000 nm in CdS films prepared by spray pyrolysis. Since this material can be easily fabricated into p‐n devices, this suggests the possibility of inexpensive electro‐optical devices. Also, the photoluminescence spectra of CdS and amorphous Si:H are very similar.
