Abstract

A new type of solid state solar cell is produced by using Fe2O3 (working electrode) and SiC as a hole collector (counter electrode). Two molten salts, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride (EMICl) and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium iodide (BMII) were used as crystal growth inhibitors with a SiC film. It was found that BMII shows about 10 times higher efficiency compared to an EMICI-based SiC film solar cell.

 

Keywords: Fe2O3; SiC; Solid state solar cell; Molten salt.
