We reported in this work the growth of ZnSe nanoparticles thin films deposited on glass substrates were synthesized by a pulsed laser deposition (PLD) method. The as obtained films were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), UV-VIS Spectrophotometer, and Photoluminescence (PL) spectra. X-ray diffraction study confirmed the transformation the cubic phase of ZnSe nanoparticles into hexagonal phase by increase the laser fluence from (4.77-5.97) J/cm2. The particle size variations were achieved by varying the laser fluence of prepared films. XRD studies and TEM images confirmed the nanometer size was found to lie in the range of 12-80 nm. A UV-VIS study was carried out to measure the band gap of the ZnSe nanoparicles thin films and it showed a blue shift with respect to the bulk value. The PL spectra at room temperature (300K) of the films showed the decrease of maximum values at at 522 nm( 2.379), 521 nm (2.3838) and 520 nm (2.3882 eV) for the laser fluences (4.77, 5.57 and 5.97 J/cm2), respectively. We assigned the variation due a larger number of non-radiative recombination centers appears in the films.
