Thin CdS films about 200-500 nm thick with stable hexagonal modification with 85-80 % transparency value respectively in the visible and infrared spectrum regions were investigated. The use of the FTO sublayer to obtain heterosystem glass/FTO/CdS by magnetron sputtering does not affect the phase composition of the cadmium sulfide layer and the width of the band gap (Eg = 2.42-2.44 eV). Cadmium sulfide thin films, obtained by direct current magnetron sputtering, can be used as a layer of a wide window layer in thin-film solar cells based on the CdS/CdTe heterosystem.
