Abstract
Recent developments in thin film polycrystalline cells based on CdS/Cu2S have established this cell as a major contender for large scale terrestrial application. Conversion efficiencies for CdS/Cu2S now exceed 8%, with firm reason to believe that 10% is achievable. A modified cell using (CdZn)S is expected to be capable of about 15% conversion efficiency.
