Title: Fabrication of ionic liquid electrodeposited Cu--Sn--Zn--S--Se thin films and method of making

Abstract

A semiconductor thin-film and method for producing a semiconductor thin-films comprising a metallic salt, an ionic compound in a non-aqueous solution mixed with a solvent and processing the stacked layer in chalcogen that results in a CZTS/CZTSS thin films that may be deposited on a substrate is disclosed.
