Usually, these devices use a CdS thin film as buffer layer in their structure; this layer improves mechanical heterojunction between absorbent layer and TCO; however CdS depicts environmental hazards during manufacture of the layers; besides, this material has a small forbidden energy band gap ([E.sub.g] = 2.4 eV); this low-energy band gap reduces photocurrent at wavelengths near the ultraviolet region, and this incomplete absorption of the visible spectrum for CdS buffer layers is considered to be responsible for the drop in quantum efficiency of chalcopyrite-based solar cells [4-6].
