Thin films of AgInSe2 ternary compound were grown by a successive process in which the production of AIS-Ag–AIS-Ag–AIS-Ag layers was deposited by e-beam and thermal evaporation on p-type silicon substrates. The formation of a stoichiometric AgInSe2 thin film with 75.2% crystallinity was achieved and the film had homogenous and smooth surfaces. n-AgInSe2/p-Si structure has exhibited good rectifying behavior with rectification ratio of 3.99 × 103. The ideality factor and saturation current were found to be 1.74 and 2.71 × 10−7 A, respectively. The n-AgInSe2/p-Si heterojunction diode exhibited non-ideal reverse-bias capacitance–voltage (C −2–V) characteristic due to fully depletion of n-AgInSe2 side. The basic photovoltaic parameters of the diode such as open-circuit voltage (V oc), short-circuit current (I sc), and fill factor (FF) were obtained as 0.49 V, 4.03 mA, and 27.65%, respectively.
