Wang, Hongxia & Bell, John M. (2011) Thin film solar cells based on CU2ZnSnS4 absorber. In The 5th World Congress on Engineering Asset Management (WCEAM 2010), 25-27 October 2010, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Qld.
Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) is considered to be one of the most promising light absorbing materials for low cost, high efficiency thin film solar cells. Compared to conventional CuIn(S, Se)2 (CIS) and Cu(InGa)(S,Se)2 (CIGS) as well as CdTe light absorber, CZTS is only composed of earth-abundant non-toxic elements, ensuring the price competitiveness of this kind of solar cell in the future PV market. However, the research in this area is very limited compared to CIS and CIGS. Detailed studies of both the material and the device are rare, which significantly restricts the development in this area. This paper reviews the progress in the research field of CZTS, particularly the methods which were employed to prepare CZTS absorber material.
