Zn1-xMgxO/Cu2O/Ag solar cells were fabricated upon fluorine doped tin oxide coated soda lime glass substrate with varying percentage of Mg mol% doping in zinc oxide (ZnO) layer. Short circuit current density & open circuit voltages of the fabricated cells were investigated. Optimum doping with Mg improved the transparency of ZnO layer which helped in increasing the short circuit current density of solar cells. An enhancement of open circuit voltage was observed with increase in x, which was investigated using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and the results revealed that with increase in x, there was a decrease in conduction band offset between Zn1-xMgxO and cuprous oxide layers. From UV-Visible transmittance spectra, it was observed that with Mg doping in ZnO nanostructure, optical losses were reduced which resulted in increase in Short circuit current density. The objective of this study was to investigate and develop a technology for fabrication of solar cells that is both cost effective and easy to produce.
