Abstract

The efficiency and steadiness of solar cells are dependent on the experimental conditions during the fabrication of the device. In the present review, development in the last few decades in CdTe/CdS solar cells on different conducting substrates, their characterizations, and their effect on their performances has been illustrated. The variations in the efficiency were observed for the CdTe/CdS solar cells because of not only different deposition methods but also the difference in deposition conditions. In addition to this contact, material plays a significant role in the performance of such a solar cell. CdTe/CdS solar cells with cheaper, greater efficiency can be possible soon.
