The successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) technique was used to deposit CdS and PbS nanotructured films. PbS thin films were grown from diluted solutions 0,4 M Pb(CH3COO)2, 0,2 M Pb(CH3COO)2 + 0,2 M C6H15NO3 (triethanolamine), 0,4 M Pb(NO3)2 as lead and 0.4 M CH3CSNH2 (thioacetamide) as sulfur precursors. CdS nanostructured films were grown from 0,1 M CdCl2 as cadmium and 0,05 M Na2S as sulfur precursors. Ionic layer by ionic layer process took place at room temperature and normal pressure. XRD, AFM and SEM and XPS characterized the growth of CdS - PbS multilayers on Si. Especially the effect of the different PbS buffer layer to the growth of CdS was studied. The PbS films were polycrystaline and cubic and CdS films were polycrystalline and hexagonal. The best crystallinity of the double layer films was achieved when lead nitrate was used as precursor. According to SEM and AFM the films were smooth.
