Abstract

The binary semiconductor compound Molybdenum telluride (MoTe2) is For high efficiency and better thermal stability, Molybdenum telluride (MoTe2) is considered as potential solar cell. AMPS (Analysis of Microelectronic and Photonic Structures) simulator is used to investigate the cell performance parameters for ultra-Thin MoTe2 PV cell. In this research work, it has been explored that the cell conversion efficiency of MoTe2 PV cell is improved with the insertion of Zinc Telluride (ZnTe) as back surface field (BSF) above the back contact metal. The highest conversion efficiency of 25.29% was found for ZnTe BSF with only 0.7 μm of absorber layer whereas it was 17.06% for no BSF with 1 μm thickness of absorber layer. The thermal stability of MoTe2 PV cell with ZnTe BSF showed better stability.
