Hybrid solar cells using CdS thin films deposited via spray pyrolysis technique
The paper presents the photovoltaic performance of hybrid solar cells comprising of thin films of cadmium sulphide and poly(3-hexyl) thiophene. Cadmium sulphide thin films were deposited using spray pyrolysis technique. Current-voltage characterizations were performed for cadmium sulphide/poly(3-hexyl) thiophene heterojunctions in dark and under illumination (100 mWcm(-2)). The best device yields a short circuit current density of 1.54 mA/cm(2), an open circuit voltage of 343 mV, and a power conversion efficiency of 0.15%. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
