Improvement of optical and electrical properties of ITO thin films by electro-annealing
The effect of electro-annealing in vacuum and air on the optical and electrical properties of ITO thin films grown by large area DC magnetron sputtering was investigated. Moreover, the performances of the electro-annealed ...
Effect of heat treating metallic constituents on the properties of Cu2ZnSnSe4 thin films formed by a two-stage process
In this study Cu2ZnSnSe4 (CZTSe) thin films were grown by a two-stage process that involved sputter deposition of a Cu/Sn/Zn/Cu metallic stack, annealing the stack at various temperatures for 30 min, evaporation of a Se ...
Comparison of photocatalytic properties of TiO2 thin films and fibers
(EDP Sciences, 2016-09)
Efficiency of solar panels degrades as a result of organic contamination such as airborne particles, bird droppings and leaves. Any foreign object on photovoltaic panels reduces the sunlight entering the absorbing surface ...
Influence of copper composition and reaction temperature on the properties of CZTSe thin films
In this study Cu2ZnSnSe4 (CZTSe) compound layers were grown using a two-stage technique that involved deposition of metallic precursors (Cu, Zn, and Sn) and Se in the first stage, followed by reaction of all the species ...
Growth of Cu2ZnSnS4 absorber layer on flexible metallic substrates for thin film solar cell applications
In this work, Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) absorber layers were fabricated using a two-stage process. Sequentially deposited Cu-Zn-Sn thin film layers on metallic foils were annealed in an Ar + S2(g) atmosphere. We aimed to investigate ...
Importance of CdS buffer layer thickness on Cu2ZnSnS4-based solar cell efficiency
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2018-06)
Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) thin films were grown on Mo-coated soda lime glass (SLG) substrates by the sulfurization of DC magnetron-sputtered Zn, Sn and Cu metallic precursors under a sulfur atmosphere at 550 °C for 45 min. Understanding ...
