Numerical analysis of earth-abundant Cu2ZnSn(SxSe1-x)(4) solar cells based on Spectroscopic Ellipsometry results by using SCAPS-1D
Mixed chalcogenide CZTSSe with earth abundant elements, inexpensive, environmental-friendly and impressive photovoltaic performance is a promising absorber material for kesterite thin film solar cells of third generation. In this work, a numerical simulation of p-CZTSSe/n-CdS heterojunction solar cells have been presented using one dimensional Solar Capacitance Simulator. The influence of composition, absorber thickness, defect density and working temperature on Voc, Jsc, FF and power conversion efficiency has been investigated. The optimized cell shows 23.16% efficiency with a Voc similar to 0.724 V corresponding to 40% of the S/S + Se ratio.
