Abstract/Summary Thin films of cadmium telluride (CdTe) electrodeposited from aqueous solutions have been used as the absorber in solar cells of the type glass/conducting transparent oxide/n-type window layer/p-type absorber layer/back contact. The window layer for these cells has been CdZnS (usually x = 1) made by a variety of means e.g., compound evaporation, spray pyrolysis, electroless deposition, electrodeposition from aqueous and aprotic solvents using either direct or periodic pulse potentials. Recent results have demonstrated the consequences of using various conducting transparent oxides as both the front contact and the window layer. In this paper, the preparation and properties of the thin films and some cells fabricated from them are presented to illustrate that efficient solar cells can be made with a variety of window layers.
