Comparison Between Research-Grade and Commercially Available SnO2 for Thin-Film CdTe Solar Cells: Preprint

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Compared to commercial SnO2 (with similar film thickness and sheet resistance), research-grade SnO2 has higher optical transmittance and higher electron mobility. Based on our study, changing the glass substrate and improving the SnO2 quality could improve the optical properties of commercial SnO2.
