Abstract

Copper Indium diselenide (CIS) is one of the most promising semiconducting materials used in the solar cell industry. Its high solar efficiency, low toxicity, electrical and optical properties make this compound a good candidate for thin film solar cells. Researchers have developed a variety of methods to deposit CIS thin films such as Flash evaporation, Co-Evaporation, Sputtering, Molecular Beam Epitaxy, Spray Pyrolysis etc,. Growth of stoichiometric CuInSe2 with the desired properties has always been a challenge. This work describes the production of nearly stoichiometric CuInSe2 films using Pulsed D.C Magnetron Sputtering (PDMS) from CuInSe2 polycrystalline powders with different starting compositions.
