Hybrid ZnO films were prepared via a single-step electrochemical process. Extraction of organic component from the hybrid films resulted tiny ZnO columns perpendicular to the substrate. A Semiconductor hetro Junction was prepared by depositing CuSCN on ZnO films. The maximum photocurrent of 0.36 mAcm-2 and photovoltage of 290 mV were observed for the solid-state cell fabricated by sandwiching organic dye mercurochrome in between ZnO and CuSCN films.
