Sublimated Photoconductive Films of CdS Type: History and Modernity

Brief history is given of the physical properties study at Saratov University and in the USSR of sublimated photoconducting films of CdS type that plays a prominent role in photoelectric researches, for which the cadmium sulfide served as a model substance. An addition of lead sulfide to cadmium sulfide has increased the speed of photoresponse and the resistance to degradation.
