We present an all-oxide solar cell fabricated from vertically oriented zinc oxide
nanowires and cuprous oxide nanoparticles. Our solar cell consists of vertically
oriented n-type zinc oxide nanowires, surrounded by a film constructed from p-
type cuprous oxide nanoparticles. Our solution-based synthesis of inexpensive
and environmentally benign oxide materials in a solar cell would allow for the
facile production of large-scale photovoltaic devices. We found that the solar cell
performance is enhanced with the addition of an intermediate oxide insulating
layer between the nanowires and the nanoparticles. This observation of the
important dependence of the shunt resistance on the photovoltaic performance is
widely applicable to any nanowire solar cell constructed with the nanowire array
in direct contact with one electrode.
Here’s what’s next.
