Abstract
Flexible semiconducting devices such as solar cells and displays have been a recent attraction. Unlike heavy, brittle glass substrates, plastics and metallic foils have advantage of flexibility. They also have added advantages like good thermal stability and high melting point. In this paper we present a very simple method for the growth of Copper Indium Sulphide (CIS) films by depositing merely Indium Sulphide (InS) directly over the Cu foil using simple and economical chemical spray pyrolysis technique. The effects of volume of precursor solution on structural and morphological properties of the films were studied. Finally trials on heterojunctions with a structure of Cu foil/CIS/InS/Ag were also employed. Further improvement on heterojunction is expected by optimizing the morphological and structural properties of the film.
