Abstract: Aluminium-doped zinc oxide films are deposited for use in dye-sensitized solar cells. High temperature stability is achieved by varying the sputtering conditions, whilst maintaining high transmission. The most stable film of the set deposited increased to only 9.4 Ω/sq after heating in air at 400°C from 5.1 Ω/sq. Initial solar cells are made with encouraging efficiencies of 8.2% reported.
