Title: Photoelectrochemical cells with and without storage based on II-VI semiconductor materials

Abstract

Research on electrochemical photovoltaic cells incorporating thin film n-CdSe and n-CdSe/sub 1-x/Te/sub x/ photoanodes has resulted in efficiencies up to 7.5% using small area electrodes in polysulfide electrolytes. Efficiencies close to 10% can be achieved using alternate electrolytes in significantly less stable systems. Research on CuInSe/sub 2/ electrochemical photovoltaic cells has resulted in efficiencies up to 11.7% using single crystal n-CuInSe/sub 2/ photoanodes in aqueous electrolytes. A review will also be given on the status of photoelectrochemical storage research.
