Solar cell


Polycrystalline Si


Tecturing of surface


Thin film solar cell


Cu(InGa)Se2-based solar cells have often been touted as being among the most promising of solar cell technologies for cost-effective power generation. This is partly due to the advantages of thin films for low-cost, high-rate semiconductor deposition over large areas using layers only a few microns thick and for fabrication of monolithically interconnected modules. Perhaps more importantly, very high efficiencies have been demonstrated with Cu(InGa)Se2 at both the cell and the module levels.

Chemical bath deposition


Chemical bath deposition

Deposition of CdS buffer layers on Cu(InGa)Se2 is generally made in an alkaline aqueous solution (pH> 9) of the following three constituents:

1. a cadmium salt; for example, CdS04, CdCl2, CdI2, Cd(CH3COO)2

2. a complexing agent; commonly NH3 (ammonia)

3. a sulphur precursor; commonly SC(NH2)2 (thiourea).
