    Films of CdTe have been produced by a novel low cost process based on electrophoretic deposition using polar organic solvents. The main advantage of this method is the high rate of deposition, greater than 20 μm/min. Details of the deposition process are given and the effects of post-deposition annealing of the samples have also been investigated using XRD, SEM and EDAX. Laser annealing resulted in melting of CdTe producing more compact and robust films.
