Structural and Optical Properties of ZnO Thin Films for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell

H. Abdullah and N. Ariyanto

Abstract:
The zinc oxide sol-gel was prepared as follows: Zinc acetate (M183.46. Zn(C2H3O2)2, 99.99% chemical purity) was first dissolved in iso propanol ((CH3)2CHOH) at room temperature. By using this method, the formation of zinc oxide film is much easier and cheaper to be prepared and it has been shown to achieve high breakdown fields by small grain size. Characterization of the zinc oxide is needed by using X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Ultraviolet-Visible Spectroscopy (UV-Vis). XRD pattern shows the deposited films were polycrystalline with a hexagonal wurzite structure. Effect in concentration and thickness of zinc oxide will differ in the bandgap of the semiconductor. By doing this research, it is believe that zinc oxide has many advantages in solar cell application.
