Abstract

PURPOSE:To obtain the photovoltaic element having low cost and large area by forming a CdS thin film and a CdTe thin film on a transparent substrate having conductive surface. CONSTITUTION:The CdS thin film 3 is formed by sputtering on the conductive surface 2 of the transparent substrate 1. It is not necessary for the thin film 3 to have a thickness more than 5mum. The CdTe thin film 4 is further formed by sputtering on the film 3. It is preferred that the thickness of the thin film 4 is less than 2mum from the light absorption point, but it is not necessary for the film 4 to have a thickness more than 5mum. Then, an output electrode 5 is mounted on the surface of the thin film 4. In this manner, the photovoltaic element having large area can be obtained inexpensively.
