Abstract

Cu(In,Ga)Se2 films were electrodeposited on molybdenum substrates from a single pH buffered bath and annealed in a reducing selenium atmosphere. The opto-electronic properties of the films were characterized using a potentiostatically- controlled three electrode setup and an electrolyte contact. Pulsed illumination was used to determine the carrier type and the speed of photoresponse. Chopped monochromatic illumination was used to measure photocurrent spectra. The electrodeposited copper chalcopyrite films were compared with films prepared by sputtering and spraying techniques.
