Abstract

We report the first synthesis of colloidal CuInTe 2 , CuInTe 2-x Se x gradient alloyed quantum dots (QDs) through a simple hot injection method. We confirmed the composition of synthesized QDs to cationic rich phase of CuIn 1.5 Te 2.5 and Cu 0.23 In 0.36 Te 0.19 Se 0.22 with XPS and ICP analysis, and we have also found that the gradient alloyed Cu 0.23 In 0.36 Te 0.19 Se 0.22 QDs exhibit greatly improved stability over the CuIn 1.5 Te 2.5 QDs. The solution-processed solar cell based on the gradient alloyed Cu 0.23 In 0.36 Te 0.19 Se 0.22 QDs exhibited 17.4 mA/cm 2 of short circuit current density (J sc ), 0.40 V of open circuit voltage (V oc ), 44.1% of fill factor (FF), and 3.1% of overall power conversion efficiency at 100 mW/cm 2 AM 1.5G illumination.
