In this work, CdTe/CdS solar cells in substrate configuration were developed, and the results on different combinations of back contact materials are presented. A Cu-containing back contact buffer layer of MoO3, Te, and Cu leads to remarkably high VOC and fill factor of 768 mV and 68.6%, respectively, yielding 11.3% conversion efficiency. With a Cu-free MoO3/Te buffer material, a VOC of 733 mV, a fill factor of 62.3%, and an efficiency of 10.0% efficiency could be achieved.
