Co-electrodeposition of Cu-Zn-Sn film and synthesis of Cu2ZnSnS4 photovoltaic material

Hreid, Tubshin (2016) Co-electrodeposition of Cu-Zn-Sn film and synthesis of Cu2ZnSnS4 photovoltaic material. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This work contributes to electrochemical fabrication of Cu-Zn-Sn alloy thin film and synthesis of kesterite Cu2ZnSnS4 film which is a promising new material for sustainable photovoltaic devices. Co-electrodeposition provides a low-cost, time-saving and environmentally friendly approach to fabricate Cu-Zn-Sn film and has a potential application in large scale and high throughput production of Cu2ZnSnS4 material. This work includes identification of critical parameters controlling the formation of homogeneous Cu-Zn-Sn film, investigation of its growth mechanism, precisely controlled synthesis of kesterite Cu2ZnSnS4 film and effects of metal ions concentration on formation of Cu-Zn-Sn film and its application in kesterite Cu2ZnSnS4 solar cells.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
