Comparison Between Research-Grade SnO2 and Commercial Available SnO2 for Thin-Film CdTe Solar Cell (Poster)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A comparison between research-grade, tin-oxide (SnO{sub 2}) thin films and those available from commercial sources is performed. The research-grade SnO{sub 2} film is fabricated at NREL by low-pressure metal-organic chemical vapor deposition. The commercial SnO{sub 2} films are Pilkington Tec 8 and Tec 15 fabricated by atmospheric-pressure chemical vapor deposition. Optical, structural, and compositional analyses are performed. From the optical analysis, an estimation of the current losses due to the SnO{sub 2} layer and glass is provided. Our analysis indicates that the optical properties of commercial SnO{sub 2} could be improved for PV usage.
