Beginning with an overview and historical background of Copper Zinc Tin Sulphide (CZTS) technology, subsequent chapters cover properties of CZTS thin films, different preparation methods of CZTS thin films, a comparative study of CZTS and CIGS solar cell, computational approach, and future applications of CZTS thin film solar modules to both ground-mount and rooftop installation.

The semiconducting compound (CZTS) is made up earth-abundant, low-cost and non-toxic elements, which make it an ideal candidate to replace Cu(In,Ga)Se2 (CIGS) and CdTe solar cells which face material scarcity and toxicity issues. The device performance of CZTS-based thin film solar cells has been steadily improving over the past 20 years, and they have now reached near commercial efficiency levels (10%). These achievements prove that CZTS-based solar cells have the potential to be used for large-scale deployment of photovoltaics.

With contributions from leading researchers from academia and industry, many of these authors have contributed to the improvement of its efficiency, and have rich experience in preparing a variety of semiconducting thin films for solar cells.

From the Back Cover:

Copper Zinc Tin Sulfide (CZTS) -based thin films are produced by the thin layer deposition of photovoltaic materials onto a substrate. These semiconducting compounds have low-toxicity and are considered the most promising and cost-efficient technology for producing energy from solar cells. CZTS-based devices are made from Earth-abundant materials and are therefore more sustainable, cheaper to produce than commercialized devices consisting of cadmium telluride and copper indium gallium selenide and, increasingly, efficient enough to be used for large-scale deployment.

This book is divided into four parts. Part I comprises an introduction to CZTS thin films and a discussion of their market challenges. Part II continues with a description of the physics and chemistry of quaternary
chalcogenide semiconductors. Part III covers the synthesis and applications of CZTS for solar cell technology, and Part IV investigates device physics.

This book draws on state-of-the-art research and contains contributions from scientists directly involved in improving the efficiency of current devices. It is essential reading for researchers and advanced students working in thin-film technology, materials science, and in the photovoltaics industry.
