Abstract. ZnO films with high conductivity are obtained by atomic layer deposition for application in solar cells based on n-CdS/n-CdTe/p-Cu1.8S heterostructure. The parameters of solar cells with ZnO electrode are calculated from light and dark current-voltage characteristics and compared with those obtained for structures with Mo contact. The advantages of ZnO electrode are discussed.

Keywords: solar cells on n-CdS/n-CdTe/p-Cu1.8S heterostructure, conductive ZnO films, atomic layer deposition.
