Title: In/sub 2/O/sub 3/:(Sn) and SnO/sub 2/:(F) films: application to solar energy conversion. Part II. Electrical and optical properties

Abstract

Highly conductive and transparent thin films of SnO/sub 2/:F and In/sub 2/O/sub 3/:Sn have been prepared using the simple pyrolitic (spray) method. The electrical properties of these layers are studied in relation to their dopant concentrations and their stoichiometric deviation. Typically we obtained for In/sub 2/O/sub 3/:Sn and SnO/sub 2/:F layers having the best overall properties (higher transparency and lower sheet resistance), resistivities ranging between 4 and 6.10/sup -4/ ..cap omega..cm with transparency exceeding 85% over the visible and near infra-red range of the spectrum. Emphasis is put on the possible applications of these films in solar energy conversion systems (solar cell and flat plate collectors technology).
