Copper sulfide as a light absorber in wet-chemical synthesized extremely thin absorber (ETA) solar cells

Abstract

We demonstrate an extremely thin absorber (ETA) solar cell using a copper sulfide (Cu2−xS) light absorber. We compare the cell performance with that of a CdS absorber, to demonstrate the potential and the challenges associated with using low-cost, low-band gap absorber materials to fully exploit the thin-absorber concept.
