In a method of manufacturing a solar cell, a phase A is deposited in the form of stacks on an electrically conductive substrate, wherein the stacks are covalently and electrically interconnected and also connected to the substrate, and any spaces between the stacks are filled with a phase B, which is electrically connected to a counter electrode, wherein the phases A and B are so selected that they form a photovoltaic active transition structure or an injection contact. The invention also resides in a solar cell made in accordance with this method.
