Project: Identification of electrically active defects in solar energy materials
- project duration
- 01-JAN-11 – 31-OCT-15
- This project aims at identifying defects in absorber layers of solar cells that limit their efficiency. The focus is on thin film solar cells, in particular with CuIn(1-x)Ga(x)Se(2) as absorber. Defects in complete cells and absorber bulk material are characterized via various spectroscopic techniques. The results can help in optimizing materials synthesis processes for this type of solar cells.
