The Schottky junction, with merits of material universality, low cost and easy fabrication, is an alternative structure for solar cells. Compared to traditional indium-tin-oxide (ITO) based Schottky junction solar cells, graphene-based ones have merits of low cost, performance stability, and are applicable to flexible devices. In this highlight, we survey the recent research on graphene-based Schottky junction solar cells, including graphene-on-silicon Schottky junction solar cells and graphene/single NW (NB) Schottky junction solar cells. The working principle of them is discussed. These works demonstrate that graphene-based Schottky junction structures are promising candidates for developing diverse novel high-efficient and low-cost photovoltaic devices. The perspective and challenge of them are also discussed and anticipated.
