A Study to Investigate High Efficiency CZTS Based Solar Cells with SCAPS-1D

EasyChair Preprint no. 10351

5 pagesDate: June 7, 2023


It is found in recent studies that researchers are focusing on CZTS types solar cells because of the competent characteristics of its constituent material compared to CIGS, Si, CdTe solar cells. This study has simulated high-efficiency Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) based solar cells with ZnS antireflection coating using SCAPS-1D Simulation software. CZTS based thin-film solar cell is getting concerned with promising material for implementing a different photovoltaic application with advantages like low manufacturing cost, high efficiency, and environment friendly. We have tried to optimize the absorber layer of the MoS2O/CZTS/CdS/ZnO/n-ITO/ZnS thin-film solar cells. In this model, different solar cell parameters such as efficiency (ɳ), fill factor (FF), short circuit current density (JSC) and open-circuit voltage (VOC) and have been observed with different bandgaps and thickness of the absorber layer for better results. After the simulation, the highest observed efficiency is 16.03%, while FF, JSC & VOC are 76.19, 32.696217, and 0.6435 for different bandgaps, respectively.
