This study investigates the influence of nanoparticles (NPs) size on their optical properties, and the effect of combination of lead sulfide (PbS) quantum dots (QDs), with n-type and p-type NPs, on the photogenerated charge carriers transport across the heterojunction solar cell structure. PbS QDs, of a range of sizes, were synthesized using a co-precipitation process. In this study, p-type NPs, which are poly [3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene] –poly [styrenesulfonate] (PEDOT: PSS), copper oxide (CuO) and graphene oxide (GO); and n-type NPs which are zinc oxide (ZnO), titanium dioxide (TiO2), cadmium sulfide (CdS) and bismuth sulfide (Bi2S3), were synthesized and characterized by SEM ...
