Annotation This article is devoted to the development of cost-effective and suitable for large-scale production method for obtaining thin films of tin sulfide SnS for photovoltaic applications. Thin films of SnS with orthorhombic structure (Herzenbergite) were synthesized by sulfurization in sulfur vapor of tin films electrodeposited from a standard tinning solution. SnS synthesized polycrystalline material was an electronic semiconductor with bandgap and optical absorption coefficient optimum for utilization in solar cell.
