Abstract: As emphasis towards sustainable and Renewable energy resources grows world-wide,interest in the capture and use of solar energy is increasing dramatically.Solar cells have been known and used for many years,but depletion of conventional energy resources resulted in the intensification of research on solar cells leading to new design and technique of fabrication.The current emphasis is directed towards high effiency inexpensive solar cells.This thesis includes deposition and characterization of CuInS2 and In2S3 thin films using chemical Spray Pyrolysis(CSP) technique.The optimum condition for these films to be used as absorber and buffer layer respectively in solar cells were thus found out.Solar cell with the stucture,ITO/CuInS2/In2S3/metal electrode was fabricated using these well-characterized films,which yielded an efficiency of 9.5%.
