CdS/PVA nanocomposite thin films have been deposited on glass substrates by in-situ thermolysis of precusors dispersed in polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). The synthetic technique reported in this study is free from complexing agent and hence no need to control the pH of the solution as in the case of conventional CBD. The as-prepared films were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), selected area electron diffraction (SAED), UV–Visible spectroscopy, and photoluminescence (PL) spectra. The XRD and SAED results indicated the formation of CdS nanoparticles with hexagonal phase in the PVA matrix. The photoluminescence and UV-visible spectroscopy revealed that CdS/PVA
