Abstract/Summary:


Metal oxides-based heterojunctions heterojunctions for solar cells and other transparent transparent applications applications have been fabricated fabricated by rf sputtering sputtering or combining sputtering and chemical methods. A multi-target rf-sputtering system was used for the growth of all oxide single films (ITO, n- & p-ZnO:N, p-NiO:N) or multilayers (ITO/p-ZnO:N/n-ZnO) in a single growth run without breaking the vacuum in the growth chamber. By employing a ZnN target, n-type and p-type ZnO were realized leading to stable p/n ZnO homojunctions, whereas by employing a Ni target, undoped and N-doped p-type NiO were fabricated. Compact (c-) and mesoporous (m-) TiO2 were fabricated by standard spin coating procedure used for perovskite solar cells and their properties were analyzed and optimized. The transparent behaviour of p/n ZnO homojunctions and p-NiO:N/nTiO2 heterojunctions were characterized. The realization of transparent and stable metal-oxide films can pave the way to TiO2 heterojunctions were characterized. The realization of transparent and stable metal-oxide films can pave the way to the realization of all-oxide flexible and transparent junctions for optoelectronic devices with applications in energy harvesting and storage, sensing and telecommunication.
