Abstract
The current status of non-silicon photovoltaic solar cells is discussed including the identification of current technical and economic issues and future research directions for potential high efficiency low cost technologies. This review covers such advanced materials as CdS/Cu2S, CdS/CuInSe2, and GaAs homojunction and heterojunction devices; such emerging materials as InP, Zn3P2 and CdTe; and liquid junction electrochemical photovoltaic cells. An attempt is made to compare the current relative status of these various technologies and to indicate their near term potential where possible.
