Preferred orientation in polycrystalline Cu(In,Ga)Se{sub 2} and its effect on absorber thin-films and devices

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The purpose of this work is to investigate physical properties of Cu(In,Ga)Se{sub 2} polycrystalline thin-films exhibiting a high degree of preferred orientation. Specifically, by using Na-free Cu(In,Ga)Se{sub 2} thin-films, it is intended to experimentally determine differences (if any) between films with a (110/102)-preferred orientation and films with a (112)-preferred orientation. The approach to the problem is a systematic comparative analysis of film and device properties in which the most significant variable is the preferred orientation of the Cu(In,Ga)Se{sub 2} polycrystalline absorbers. To complement the results of Na-free absorbers and devices, a microstructural analysis is presented on (110)-oriented high efficiency Cu(In,Ga)Se{sub ... continued below
