Effects of Surface Composition on CdTe/CdS Device Performance

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The atomic composition of the back surface of the CdTe layer in a CdTe/CdS photovoltiac (PV) device has a significant influence on the quality of the electrical contact to this layer. This paper reports the results of a systematic study that correlates the composition of the back surface with pre-contact processing and device performance.
