In this work, the zinc oxide nanoparticles were prepared chemically and deposited by casting style on glass bases and treated thermally at a temperature of 600 °C. The study focused on Optical and structural properties of thin films. An optical advantages of Zinc Oxide (ZnO) were characterized by using ultraviolet visible Spectroscopy. And the structure by using X-Ray Diffraction and (AFM). The optical advantages of thin films were studied by recording the transmittance spectra of wavelengths range (300-900 nm). The energy gap was calculated using tauc equation and is found (3 eV). I-V properties of the solar cell under light at 40 mW/cm2 flounce was investigated. The open circuit Voltage (Voc) was 33 and Short-circuit density (Isc) was 0.017 mA. This measurements show that the fill factor (F.F) and conversation efficiency (η), were 55% and 9.9% respectively.
