Understanding the Influence of Belt Furnace and Firing Parameters on Efficiency of Thin Film CIGS Solar Cells

Abstract:

Thin film photovoltaic's is a promising path for achieving higher efficiencies at lower costs. With advancements in materials and processing technologies, thin film photovoltaic's has been gaining significant importance in solar cell technology. Betwixt the various thin film technologies, CIGS solar cells have been reported as being the most efficient. Currently, extensive efforts are underway for improving the efficiency of CIGS solar cells while considerably increasing its production volume. This exertion will explain the processing of CIGS solar cells and the importance of the firing process. In addition, the study will shine light on an ideal belt furnace for selenization of CIGS solar cells.
