RÉSUMÉ

Copper bismuth sulfide (CBS) is a material that could be used in future solar panels as a more cost effective replacement for silicon or other thin films. Multiple low-temperature solvothermal methods to make this material have been discovered. Efforts to utilize these syntheses in a custom-built benchtop reactor meant to deposit the material on fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) glass have been under way for some time. Recently, a second generation reactor design has been completed that solves many problems associated with our first reactor. The design was intended to promote uniform liquid flow across the FTO glass. This reactor was also built with a temperature gradient transverse to the liquid flow so that the optimal temperature for the deposition of CBS could be discovered. The designing and fabrication of this reactor will be covered, as well as preliminary results from our deposition experiments with Cu3BiS3.
