Copper Zinc Tin Sulfide (CZTS) has the potential to produce inexpensive solar cells from earth abundant materials. The effects of sodium and potassium ions on the formation of Copper Zinc Tin Sulfide crystals from metal precursors was investigated. It was found that the addition of these ions resulted in increases in the CZTS crystal size under identical processing conditions. Written to complete the URS requirement for Cody Wrasman.
