  • Copper(I) oxide or cuprous oxide is the inorganic compound with the formula Cu2O. It is one of the principal oxides of copper.
  • The structural, optical and electrical properties of as-deposited copper oxides are evaluated, based on which cuprous oxide is selected as a promising material for photovoltaic applications
  • Cuprous oxide is selected for the fabrication of p-n homo-junction because it has better crystallinity, bigger grains, better control over crystal quality and a direct band gap.
  • The most important methods for the production of Cu2O are by thermal oxidation, electrodeposition and by sputtering.
  • Raw materials namely copper scrap is available in the form of rejected cables, wires etc, from electrical industries and borings, clipping and trunings from the engineering and metal goods industries.
  • A new process technology has been developed at Eltron for producing
    valuable reduced metal oxides of significant commercial value such as Cu2O and ferrites directly from acidic feed-streams of simple metal salts at room temperature.
  • The essential items of plant and machinery required for the process are required for the process are rectifier, brine circulating pumps, filter press, centrifuge, vacuum oven and electrolytic cells, storage tanks.
  • Cuprous oxide, a semiconductor material has a direct band gap of about 2 eV. Since it is a direct band
    gap material this imparts higher efficiency especially when used for light emitting diodes (LED).
  • Cu2O is currently attracting considerable interest in the fields of both condensed matter physics and material chemistry.
  • Cu2O is a prospective candidate for a low-cost photovoltaic power generator because of its high optical absorption coe cient and reasonably
    good photovoltaic properties
  • Cuprous oxide is an important ingredient of anti-fouling paints and of fungicidal compositions used in horticultural operations.
  • Cuprous oxide is commonly used as a pigment, a fungicide, and an antifouling agent for marine paints.
  • Cu2O is a non- stoichiometic defect p–type semiconductor and its potential for the design of solar cells have been recognized since 1920.
  • The Indian tea industry is estimated to consume up to 750 tones per cuprous oxide or copper oxychloride dusts, containing 4 percent, 6 percent or 12 percent copper.
  • Strong demand for marine paints is holding the market for cuprous oxide steady. Roughly 90% of cuprous oxide demand is for marine paint application, and its market is now marginally tight with the price generally hovering at Yen 680 ($7.07)-800/kg.
