Abstract

We report the growth of Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) thin films by electrodeposition in ionic liquid. Sulfurization was performed in elementary sulfur vapor environment at 450°C for 2 hours. The X-ray diffraction analysis indicated that the film has a stannite structure with preferred grain orientation along (112). Photo-absorption measurement of the sample was performed from 500 nm to 990 nm. It is found that the energy bandgap of the film is about 1.49eV and the absorption coefficient is found to be of the order of 104cm-1.
