Beginning with an overview and historical background of Copper Zinc Tin Sulphide (CZTS) technology, subsequent chapters cover properties of CZTS thin films, different preparation methods of CZTS thin films, a comparative study of CZTS and CIGS solar cell, computational approach, and future applications of CZTS thin film solar modules to both grounda€“mount and rooftop installation. The semiconducting compound (CZTS) is made up eartha€“abundant, lowa€“cost and nona€“toxic elements, which make it an ideal candidate to replace Cu(In, Ga)Se2 (CIGS) and CdTe solar cells which face material scarcity and toxicity issues. The device performance of CZTSa€“based thin film solar cells has been steadily improving over the past 20 years, and they have now reached near commercial efficiency levels (10%). These achievements prove that CZTSa€“based solar cells have the potential to be used for largea€“scale deployment of photovoltaics. With contributions from leading researchers from academia and industry, many of these authors have contributed to the improvement of its efficiency, and have rich experience in preparing a variety of semiconducting thin films for solar cells.... by a window layer consisting of an intrinsic ZnO and aluminum-doped ZnO layer deposited by magnetron sputtering. ... In Figure 10.10 a ternary diagram is shown containing the compositions of different coevaporated CZTS solar cellanbsp;...
