AbstractQuaternary compound semiconductor CuZnSnS (CZTS), which appears to be a promising candidate for the absorber of a thin film type solar cell, was grown on polycrystalline Ag substrates by electrochemical epitaxial method. The elements were deposited in the following sequence: S/Sn/S/Cu/S/Zn/S/Cu ∈, the order being one cycle of SnS, one cycle of ZnS and two cycles of CuS. Morphology of the deposit has been characterized by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) with an energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) analyzer. X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies showed a (112) preferred orientation for the deposit. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) of the deposit indicated an approximate ratio 2:1:1:4 of Cu, Zn, Sn, and S, the expected stoichiometry for the deposit, and similar results have been obtained from EDX data. Near IR absorption measurements of the deposit at room temperature indicated a direct band gap of 1.5 eV, and open-circuit potential (OCP) studies indicated a good p-type property, both of which were suitable for fabricating a thin film solar cell. © 2008 Springer-Verlag.
