Microscopic service provider loss mechanisms in kesterite-based solar cells with a 12% performance
Kesterite Cu2ZnSn( S, Se) 4 is an arising and assuring green photovoltaic or pv material, as it is abundant in the world, does not harm the environment, as well as has a steady structure, a fantastic tunability and also advantageous optoelectronic homes. Despite their qualities, solar cells based upon kesterite normally have poor power conversion efficiencies, which hinder their commercialization and also large-scale implementation.
