CZTS PHD THESIS

CZTS thin films were then assembled into the solar cells and their properties as absorber layer were optimized by varying both composition and thickness. A strong effect of the tin content on the bandgap energy, sub-gap absorption coefficient, crystalline domain and grain size is shown and a model based on the increase of the intrinsic defect density induced by a reduced tin content is proposed. The precursors were deposited using two different approaches: PhD thesis, University of Trento. In this work, CZTS thin films were grown using two different processes, based on vacuum deposition of precursors, followed by a heat treatment in sulphur atmosphere. Home About User area Help. Abstract Cu2ZnSnS4 CZTS quaternary compound has attracted much attention in the last years as new abundant, low cost and non-toxic material, with desirable properties for thin film photovoltaic PV applications.

The co-sputtering route was demonstrated to be a more successful strategy, assuring a fine-control of the film composition with good process reproducibility. These studies suggested a correlation between the increase of the bandgap energy and the improvement of the material quality, which was also confirmed by the performances of the final devices. The precursors were deposited using two different approaches: CZTS thin films were then assembled into the solar cells and their properties as absorber layer were optimized by varying both composition and thickness. A fast improvement of solar cell efficiency was obtained using this approach and a maximum efficiency of 5. The relationship between the absorber layer stoichiometry and the device performances was investigated: Materials Science and Engineering.

A detailed investigation on CZTS optical properties, microstructure, intrinsic defect density and their correlation with the material composition is presented. Cu2ZnSnS4 CZTS quaternary compound has attracted much attention in the last cztz as new abundant, low cost and non-toxic material, with desirable properties for thin film photovoltaic PV applications.

A strong effect of the tin content on the bandgap energy, thewis absorption coefficient, crystalline domain and grain size is shown and a model based on the increase of the intrinsic defect density induced by a reduced tin content is proposed. The co-sputtering route was demonstrated to be a more successful strategy, assuring a fine-control of the film composition with good process reproducibility.

The precursors were deposited using two different approaches: CZTS samples produced from stacked evaporated precursors allowed achieving a maximum efficiency of 3. Home About User area Help.

These studies suggested a correlation between the increase of the bandgap energy and the improvement of the material quality, which was also confirmed by the performances of the final devices. The relationship between the absorber layer stoichiometry and the device performances was investigated: Abstract Cu2ZnSnS4 CZTS quaternary compound has attracted much attention in the last years as new abundant, low cost and non-toxic material, with desirable properties for thin film photovoltaic PV applications.

CZTS thin films were then assembled into the solar cells and their properties as absorber layer were optimized by varying both composition and thickness. Both growth processes were found to give good quality kesterite films, showing CZTS as the main phase, large grains and suitable properties for PV application, but higher homogeneity and stoichiometry control were achieved using the co-sputtering route.
