Abstract A photovoltaic cell with carbonaceous thin film/{ital n}-type silicon ({ital C}/{ital n}-Si) was fabricated utilizing a process in which a carbonaceous thin film was deposited on an {ital n}-type silicon substrate by chemical-vapor deposition of 2,5-dimethyl-{ital p}-benzoquinone at 500{degree}C. Under illumination of 15 mWcm{sup {minus}2} light with wavelengths between 400 and 800 nm (xenon arc lamp), a power conversion efficiency ({eta}) of 6.45{percent} was achieved from this photovoltaic cell. This {ital C}/{ital n}-Si cell has shown a normalized short-circuit-current efficiency of more than 0.85 under illumination of 30 {mu}Wcm{sup {minus}2} monochromatic light from 500 to 950 nm. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
