  • Simulation and performance analysis of superstrate Cu(In,Ga)Se 2 solar cells using nanostructured Zn 1– x V x O thin films

    In this paper, we describe in the first step the structural, electrical and optical properties of the nanostructured Zn 1– x V x O thin films deposited on glass substrates by rf-magnetron sputtering using aerogel nanoparticles synthesised by the sol–gel method. The best properties, satisfying the role of window and buffer layers, were achieved, ...
