Abstract: Zinc Oxide (ZnO) and lead sulphide (PbS) nanoparticles separately synthesized by a precipitation method were combined by an ex situ route to prepare ZnO-PbS nanocomposites with different molar ratios of ZnO and PbS. Optical properties, structure and morphology of the samples were analyzed and are discussed.
