    Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) thin films have been electrochemically deposited from aqueous electrolyte containing CuCl2, ZnCl2, SnCl4 and Na2S2O3 onto fluorine doped tin oxide (FTO) coated glass substrates. A conventional three-electrode geometry consisting working, counter and reference electrodes was used to perform the electrochemical experiments. The films were deposited at - 1.1 V with respect to Ag/AgCl reference, which was optimized by cyclic voltammetry. CZTS layers were annealed in tubular furnace at 400°C for 15 minutes in vacuum. As-deposited and annealed CZTS films were characterized using range of characterization techniques to study the structural, optical, morphological, and compositional and optoelectronic properties. Annealed sample revealed (112), (220) and (312) planes corresponds to tetragonal kesterite CZTS structure and secondary peaks of CuZn alloy. The optical study sh.. Read More»
