Thin films of CdO were synthesized by electrodeposition via chronoamperometry. The concentrations of aqueous solutions of Cd(NO3)2 were chosen between 0.005 and 0.08 M. It was thought that the reaction rate would reach saturation at 0.02 M of concentration and it was measured as the concentration increased, the thicknesses of the films increased from the 452 nm to the 798 nm. The well-crystallized film was observed to be at 0.01 M of concentration. It was also found that the band gap increased at low concentrations and surface morphology of the films did not change much with concentration.
