Thin film tandem solar cells provide a promising approach to achieve high efficiencies. These tandem cells require at least a bottom low bandgap and an upper high bandgap solar cell. In this contribution, 2 high‐performance Cu(In,Ga)Se2 cells with bandgaps as low as 1.04 and 1.07 eV are presented. These cells have shown certified efficiencies of 15.7% and 16.6% respectively. Measuring these cells under a 780‐nm longpass filter, corresponding to the bandgap of a typical top cell in tandem applications (1.57 eV), they achieved efficiencies of 7.9% and 8.3%. Admittance measurements showed no recombination active deep defects. One additional high‐performance CuInSe2 thin film solar cell with bandgap of 0.95 eV and efficiency of 14.1% is presented. All 3 cells have the potential to be integrated as bottom low bandgap cells in thin film tandem applications achieving efficiencies around 24% stacked with an efficient high bandgap top cell.

Low temperature post-deposition treatment of Cu2ZnSnSe4 with NaF and KF significantly improved the solar cell efficiency (from 6.4% to 7.8% and 7.7% on average, respectively) due to enhanced fill factor (from 0.58 to 0.61 and 0.62), open-circuit voltage (Voc) (from 314 mV to 337 mV and 325 mV) and short-circuit current density (from 35.3 mA⋅cm −2 to 38.3 mA⋅cm −2 and 38.6 mA⋅cm −2). Voc improvement was higher for solar cells with NaF treatment due to an increase in radiative efficiency at room temperature and shallower defect activation energy as determined by photoluminescence (PL) and temperature dependent admittance spectroscopy, respectively. In the case of KF treatment, red-shift of the PL, higher band tail density of state and donor activation energy deeper in the band gap were limiting further improvement of the Voc compared to NaF treatment.
