  1. The solar cells are composed of as-grown and annealed ZnO/CdTe core-shell NW arrays covered with the CuSCN/Au back-side contact. The ZnO/CdTe core-shell NW arrays annealed at 450°C for 1 h are covered with the CuSCN/Au back-side contact and illuminated under AM 1.5G standard conditions for a varying time prior to the J(V) characteristic measurements.
