Abstract:

Analysis of loss and chances of efficiency increase in CdS-Cu2-xS photoconverters with impurity light absorption shows that effective photocells can be produced only with use of the drift field and characteristics of the flow of the chemical reaction which forms Cu2-xS on the CdS surface. The Russian report discusses the fact that further progress is possible in the production of solar batteries based on CdS-Cu2-xS heterojunctions as a result of selection of the optimum mode of chemical treatment, in the presence of the optimum polycrystalline structure of CdS layers.
