Abstract

The development of inorganic solid-state nanostructured solar cells over the last years has been reviewed with respect to concepts and materials. Major attention has been paid to solar cells with extremely thin absorber, solar cells with ultra-thin nano-composite absorber and solar cells with quantum dot absorber layers. The focus has been set to structured transparent electron conductors and absorber materials prepared by mainly low-temperature and wet chemical deposition methods. The great potential of inorganic solid-state nanostructured solar cells is discussed.
