The paper presents investigation of aluminum doped zinc oxide (ZnO:Al or AZO) layers in terms of their application as transparent front contacts in flexible photovoltaic cells. Studied ZnO:Al thin films were deposited using pulsed laser deposition technique (PLD). The essential parameters of obtained AZO transparent conductive layers (TCL), such as optical transmission, resistance per square and mechanical durability, were measured and analyzed.
