Synthesis of eco-friendly CuInS2 quantum dot-sensitized solar cells by a combined ex situ/in situ growth approach.


A cadmium-free CuInS2 quantum dot (QD)-sensitized solar cell (QDSC) has been fabricated by taking advantage of the ex situ synthesis approach for fabricating highly crystalline QDs and the in situ successive ionic-layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) approach for achieving high surface coverage of QDs. The ex situ synthesized CuInS2 QDs can be rendered… (More)
