Findings from University of Kashan Update Knowledge of Nanostructures (CuInS2 nanostructures: Synthesis, characterization, formation mechanism and solar cell applications)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Weekly News -- Data detailed on Nanostructures have been presented. According to news reporting from Kashan, Iran, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "This investigation reports the synthesis of CuInS2 nanostructures by using [Cu(gly)(2)] via a microwave-assisted method. CuInS2 nanostructures were obtained from a mixture of InCl3, [Cu(gly)(2)] and different sulfur sources in propylene glycol."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Kashan, "In this work, the effect of different sulfur sources on the morphology of CuInS2 nanostructures was studied. CuInS2 nanostructures were characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, EDS, and FT-IR. To fabricate a standard solar cell, CdS film was directly deposited on top of the CIS film prepared by Doctor's blade method through chemical bath deposition."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The as-deposited CdS/CuInS2 film was used for the photovoltaic measurements."
