The Development of Crystalline Sb2S3 Thin Films as A Component of The Three-Dimensional (3D) Solar Cells

Abstract. The paper present the research made in order to develop crystalline Sb2S3 thin films by Spray Pyrolysis Deposition technique, SPD. The films were developed by varying the deposition parameters: the deposition temperature, the number of sequences and the type of solvents (water and mixed: water-ethanol). The obtained films were analyzed by XRD, AFM, UV-VIS Spectroscopy and current-voltages (I-V) measurements in dark and under illumination. The results prove the formation of crystalline Sb2S3 thin films with proper electrical properties to be used as buffer layer and/ or as absorber material in the 3D cells.
