The power conversion efficiency of solar cells based on copper (I) oxide (Cu2O) is enhanced by atomic layer deposition of a thin gallium oxide (Ga2O3) layer. By improving band-alignment and passivating interface defects, the device exhibits an open-circuit voltage of 1.20 V and an efficiency of 3.97%, showing potential of over 7% efficiency.
