The following layer in CIGS
after substrate is the molybdenum (Mo) back contact which acts as an optical reflector to reflect the light back to the absorber layer in CIGS
solar cell [12, 13].
solar cells were fabricated by depositing CdS by chemical bath deposition on the SLG/Mo/CIGS structure, then i-ZnO and ZnO:Al by RF sputtering.
The depth profiles of Cu, In, Ga, and Se in the CIGS
absorber layers were obtained using two different surface analytical instruments.
"As of today, the Manz CIGSfab is the only integrated and fully-productive turnkey production line for CIGS
modules that generates profit.
These results verify that the bilayer Mo films prepared by the study are suitable for use as back metal contacts of CIGS

The device structure used in these studies is one that is commonly used for CIGS
thin film cell construction, Glass/Mo/CIGS/CdS/ZnO/ZnO:Al/Ag .
"The new record value for flexible CIGS
solar cells of 18.
Thin-film solar modules developer Ascent Solar Technologies Inc (Nasdaq:ASTI) announced on Wednesday that SW Solarwatt LTD will act as a distributor of its lightweight, thin-film CIGS
modules for building integrated (BIPV) applications in Greece and Cyprus.
- The performance of the photosensitive CIGS
layer has been improved and the surface area of the surrounding frame and other non-photosensitive portions reduced, resulting in approx.
recently signed an investment cooperation agreement with Solarion AG, a solar-energy company based in Leipzig, Germany, agreeing to produce Copper-Indium-Gallium-Diselenide (CIGS
) thin-film solar cells and develop next-generation solar energy technologies.
, a US manufacturer of electronic cigarettes, has formed a partnership with luxury charter jet service Global Exec Aviation (GEA) to offer e-cigarettes to its passengers, the company said on Wednesday.
"When you're talking about a product that's essentially Russian roulette, and the alternative is much, much better, you can imagine they're pretty happy," said Jason Healy, of electronic cigarette maker Blu Cigs
. "Up until e-cigs, there was quit or die."
Summary: NREL Verifies Energy Conversion Efficiency of 14.3% on 1 Square Meter Area CIGS
Modules, Further Advancing the Significant Potential of Thin-Film Solar Panels to Be a Competitive Energy Source
First-generation solar cells, accounting for the lion's share of today's market, are mostly silicon-based, while second-generation refers to "thin films" made by layering plastic or glass with photovoltaic material such as copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS
