We have used electrochemical deposition method to make CdS thin film and nanostructure. 0.02 M sodium thiosulfate and 0.2 M cadmium aqueous solution were prepared in pH 2.5 and 85 °C and we used the nanoimprinting technology for CdS nanostructure. We imprinted polymer resin on ITO/glass and it was used working electrode. From this study, we focus on how well build the CdS window layer on the ITO and on fabricating the CdS nanorods vertically aligned on window layer. Instead of conventional way to build the nanorods, one of the promising techniques, nanoimprinting, would be suggested.
