The International Material Research Congress (2021-IMRC) is coming next August 15-20th. In this event, I’ll be attending the Symposium C7 – Photovoltaics, Solar Energy Materials, and Technologies to present my research about the development of silver antimony sulfide selenide AgSbS2, AgSbSe2, AgSb(S,Se)2 for solar cells .
I have a story with the IMRC-Congress. When I was doing my Ph.D. project, My Advisor preferred to attendant the MRS-Fall and MRS-Spring meeting in the USA because IMRC at the Caribbean of Mexico seems like a vacation! I don’t know your experience, but In mine, a research meeting let me travel abroad for the first time, and that experience opened my mind to the world!
Now with the COVID-19 situation, I will attend but in virtual mode (What a shame). I know is for our safe then I have nothing to argue. Health, Family, and Science are first!

The Abstract – Silver Antimony Sulfide Selenide
Symposium: C7 Photovoltaics, Solar Energy Materials and Technologies
Congress participation: Virtual
The silver antimony sulfide-selenide – cubic- is a potential p-type semiconductor for application in thin-film solar cells. In this work, we present perspectives of to develop high-efficiency solar cells using this cubic metal chalcogenide semiconductor.
Material characterization of the solid solution confirms p-type conductivity with a bandgap of 1.48 eV and photoconductivity ) of .
The merit of incorporating silver atoms into the novel antimony chalcogenides (, ) comes from the transformation of orthorhombic structure into an FCC lattice, similar to that in rock salt structure.
The absorption coefficient of in the visible region of solar radiation in allows a maximum photo-generated current density of 29 for a 1 thick film under standard air-mass 1.5 global (1000 W/m2) solar radiation.
The thin film solar cells of CdS/ heterojunction presents a fill factor of 0.64, open-circuit voltage of 537 mV, but a low short circuit current density of 2 mA/.
At this stage, chemical deposition has served for prototyping the solar cells. Improvements are expected using industrial chalcogenide growth techniques, which would enhance their carrier collection.
Are you planning a poster or an oral session?
Maybe you are planning to assist to a congress in the next moths. Is it your first time? What do you expect from these science events? If my experience in this kind of events can help you. I can write a new post attending your request. Would you please comment below?
