By buffering the aqueous solution with a suitable quantity of sacrifi cial zinc species, the dissolution of functional zinc oxide structures and the formation of unwanted impurities can be prevented. The method is demonstrated for ZnO fi lms and nanowires processed in aqueous solutions used for the selective etching of mesoporous anodic alumina templates and the electrochemical deposition of Cu 2 O. In both cases, improved ZnO stability is observed with the buffering method. ZnO-Cu 2 O heterojunction solar cells (bilayer and nanowire cells) synthesized using both traditional and buffered deposition methods are characterized by impedance spectroscopy and solar simulation measurements. Buffering the Cu 2 O deposition solution is found to reduce unwanted recombination at the heterojunction and improve the photovoltaic performance.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Musselmann, Kevin</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
