Boron doped MnS films were obtained by the spray pyrolysis method using the boric acid (H_3BO_3) as dopant source at a substrate temperature of 350°C. The spray pyrolysis method has a wide range of application areas with a low cost well-suited for the manufacture of solar cells. The properties of boron doped MnS films were investigated as a function of doping concentration. The X-ray analysis showed that the films were polycrystalline fitting well with a hexagonal structure and have preferred orientation in the [002] direction. The optical band gap of the undoped and boron doped MnS films were found to vary from 3.38 to 3.20 eV. The changes observed in the energy band gap and structural properties of the films related to the boric acid concentration are discussed in detail.
