Kesterite Cu2ZnSn(SxSe1-x)4 (CZTS) has been considered as a promising candidate material class for scalable photovoltaic applications, due to its elemental abundance and controllable bandgap. However, the CZTS-based thin-film solar cells have shown significant open-circuit voltage (VOC) deficit problem, largely due to deep trap states and band tailing. Theoretical calculations predict that the pure selenide phase possesses shallower defect levels than pure sulfide phase. We study various approaches to improve microstructure of CZTS thin-films and to passivate their interface defects by using a rapid thermal process and novel interfacial layers. Quantum efficiency and capacitance-based measurements of the device indicate that significantly improved minority carrier diffusion length, resulting in a record VOC-deficit below 600 mV. Microstructural analysis and a comparative study of photoluminescence properties between the sulfide and selenide phases are discussed. Silver-containing kesterite materials are also investigated to overcome the intrinsic bulk defect problems of CZTS thin-films. Furthermore, solution-based approaches and flexible substrates towards scalable and low-cost manufacturing are discussed.
