Structural, optical and photovoltaic properties of Co (3%): CdZnS nanoparticles

HOROZ, Sabit


In the present study, CdZnS and Co (3%): CdZnS nanoparticles (NPs) have been synthesized via wet chemical method at room temperature using 1-thioglycerol as a capping agent. The incident photon-to-current conversion efficiency (IPCE) measurement has been carried out for Co (5%): CdZnS for the first time in this study. The results show that Co (3%): CdZnS can be utilized as sensitizers to improve the performance of solar cells. In addition to the photovoltaic properties; structural, optical and morphological properties of Co (3%): CdZnS NPs have been investigated. The results indicate that Co (3%): CdZnS NPs can be suitable material for photovoltaic applications.
