Zinc Sulfide (ZnS) thin film has attracted increasing attention due to their potential applications in the new generation of nano-electronics and opto-electronics devices. The physical and chemical properties of ZnS have outstanding quality for different applications. Moreover, ZnS doped with various elements are creating a new era for both academic research and industrial applications. So, the optical properties of modified ZnS thin film will help us to find a suitable doping element for convenient deposition which may enhance the conductance and transmitting properties of the film. This review work has been carried out to explore the four-modification elements that constitute Cu, Ni, Co & Fe as descending order of atomic number corresponding to Zn, along with some potential applications considering the recent research work with other doping elements too such as Al, C, Pt etc. For example, FE, FET, Catalytic, Solar cell, Electroluminescence, Fuel cell, different sensors (Chemical sensors, Bio-sensors, Humidity sensors, light sensors, UV light sensors) and nanogenerators use ZnS thin film.
