Effect of annealing on the resistivityof copper oxide solar cells


M. Y Onimisi

The effect of annealing on the resistivity of copper (I) oxides (Cu2O) samples has been investigated in detail. The resistivity of the sample is a function of the power output of such Cu 2O solar cell. Results revealed that the annealing of Cu2O samples improves the output performance compared to that of unannealed samples by about 36%. The results on the resistivity of the samples oxidized at different temperatures for different times but annealed for some duration at an identical temperature after proper quenching in deionizer water shows a lower and higher resistivities for annealed and unannealed samples respectively.
