A modified selective electrodeposition technique employing three cycles of deposition, annealing andin situ etching has been used to grown-CdSe films. The results of our investigations on the composition, surface morphology and structure of the films are also discussed. In comparison to the CdSe films obtained by a single cycle of electrodeposition, it is shown that the repeated cycle of deposition yields a more regular and less porous film with larger grain sizes.
