Zinc oxide films are used as a photovoltaic transparent electrodes for current collection. They are a good substitute for expensive transparent electrodes on the basis of Indium tin oxide. The ZnO films fabricated with a certain morphology of the structure are able to act as a light diffuser. When passing through a layer of this material solar radiation quantum changes its trajectory, so dispersion of radiation occurs, which leads to an increase in the optical path of the particle in the photoactive structure.
