    CADT is used to produce thin luminescent films of ZnS by pyrolysis of ZnCl2 and CS(NH2)2. SEM-photography and X-ray diffraction studies revealed that under specific experimental conditions polycrystalline ZnS (relative density ≈ 80 %) with a preferential orientation of the c-axis perpendicular to the substrate was obtained. Luminescence was found in ZnS-films doped with proper amounts of Cu and Al. The luminescence yield increased with better diffusion conditions during film growth.
