Abstract

In this work, we are reporting the results of the deposition and characterization of Cu(InGa)Se 2 thin films prepared by thermal co-evaporation and the results of the photovoltaic devices made with these Cu(In, Ga)Se 2 thin films, using as the window material partner a CdS layer prepared from two different chemical bath solution recipes. Results have shown that high quality polycrystalline films have been obtained, which have very uniform morphology with grain sizes of tenths of a micrometer and a chemical composition very close to the stoichiometry of the Cu(In, Ga)Se 2. After processing the Cu(In, Ga)Se 2 thin film samples into solar cells, the highest conversion efficiency achieved was ∼ 11 %. © 2011 IEEE.
