Lead selenide (PbSe) thin films were processed by chemical bath deposition (CBD) technique. To analyze the structure and the crystallite size of PbSe thin film X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis was used. Using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) the surface examination of the film was conducted. With the help of UV-visible absorption spectrum investigation of the optical properties were held. All the optical constants were determined from UV-visible absorption spectrum. The dielectric examination of PbSe thin films were analyzed for various frequencies and various temperatures. The AC electrical conductivity analysis brought to light that the conduction depended on both the frequency and the temperature. Photoconductivity analysis was carried out to the PbSe thin films.
