Abstract Cadmium sulphide and cadmium telluride films have been electrodeposited for n-CdS/p-CdTe solar cells. Cell efficiency varied considerably from 9.5% to 11.5% for each deposition set. The reverse saturation currents of 9.5% and 11.5% cells at 298 K were 25 and 6.7 nA cm-2, respectively. The cells with higher efficiency has a lower number of interface states than the less efficient cells. The 11.5% cell had interface states (NIS) of 3× 1010 cm-2 eV-1 at zero volt bias in dark and when it was illuminated with 35 mW cm-2 light at zero volt bias NIS increased by two orders to 1.2×1012 cm-2 eV-1. At higher frequency the large voltage intercept of the Mott-Schottky plot indicates the existence of the near intrinsic layer of the polycrystalline heterojunction.
