    We use photothermal deflection spectroscopy (PDS) to robustly characterize the absorption edge of lead sulfide (PbS) QD films for different bandgaps, ligands, and processing conditions used in leading devices. We also present a comprehensive overview of band tailing in many commercial and emerging PV technologies—including c-Si, GaAs, a-Si:H, CdTe, CIGS, and perovskites—then calculate detailed-balance efficiency limits incorporating Urbach band tailing for each technology. Our PDS measurements on PbS QDs show sharp exponential band tails, with Urbach energies of 22±1 meV for iodide-treated films and 24±1 meV for ethanedithiol-treated films, comparable to polycrystalline CdTe and CIGS films. From these results, we calculate a maximum efficiency of 31%—close to the ideal limit without band tailing. This finding suggests that disorder does not constrain the long-term potential of QD solar cells.
