Investigation on the Fabrication Process of Copper, Zinc, Tin and Sulphur on Molybdenum as Back Contact for Microwire Solar Cell
Shamala Maniam, Wan Siti Halimatul Munirah, Hin Yong Wong and Mukter Zaman

Abstract:
Background and Objectives: There are many types of solar cells that had been designed and fabricated in the past decades to increase the efficiency and productivity of the solar cell. Some examples of fabrication techniques will be sputtering, pulsed laser and also evaporation techniques. All these techniques will be fabricated by using vacuum system. These thin film based solar cell were frequently being used and more research still ongoing to improvise the efficiency of it. However, as for change this research were carried based on investigating the flexible microwire solar cell by using silicon based fiber as substrates. Very less reports were stated regarding solar cell by using molybdenum coated fiber.  The objective of this research study is to investigate the interface between molybdenum (back contact) coated silicone fiber and CZTS. Materials and Methods: The materials that are suggested to be the coating is Copper, Zin, Tin and Sulphur (CZTS) solution. The precursors of CZTS was synthesized by using sol gel technique. The layers were coated on top of fiber by using dip coating technique. The CZTS layer were investigated by varying the dipping speed, heating temperature and duration of dipping. Results: The samples were send to SEM, AFM, UV-Vis for characterization. The CZTS thin film has the thickness of 0.85 µm. Synthesis CZTS has the bandgap of 1.57 eV and can absorb the visible light in the range of 400-800 nm. Conclusion: In this study, it is found that the silicone fiber can be act as substrates for solar cells and more research can be carried on by using it as substrate.
