Abstract

PbS nanostructures for solar cell application, deposited in different substrate temperatures by CVD method. FESEM images show nanostructures with rod and spherical volumes and porous surface for samples. XRD analysis verified formation of cubic crystalline nanostructures. Photovoltaic measurements also shown that with increasing in substrate temperature, efficiency conversion of cells was increased.
