Abstract

Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals with tunable optical properties are promising materials for light harvesting in solar cells. So far, in particular cadmium and lead chalcogenide nanocrystals were intensively studied in this respect, and the device performance has made rapid progress in recent years. In contrast, less research efforts were undertaken to develop solar cells based on Cd- and Pb-free nanoparticles as absorber material. In the present work, we report on Schottky solar cells with the absorber layer made of colloidal copper indium disulfide nanocrystals. Absorber films with up to ∼ 500 nm thickness were realized by a solution-based layer-by-layer deposition technique. The device performance was systematically studied dependent on the absorber layer thickness. Decreasing photocurrent densities with increasing thickness revealed charge transport to be a limiting factor for the device performance.

Keywords: Schottky Solar Cells; Copper Indium Disulfide; Colloidal Nanocrystals; Layer-by-Layer Deposition
