Absolute photoluminescence measurements present a tool to predict the quality of photovoltaic absorber materials before finishing the solar cells. Quasi Fermi level splitting predicts the maximal open circuit voltage. However, various methods to extract quasi Fermi level splitting are plagued by systematic errors in the range of 10–20 meV. It is important to differentiate between the radiative loss and the shift of the emission maximum. They are not the same and when using the emission maximum as the “radiative” band gap to extract the quasi Fermi level splitting from the radiative efficiency, the quasi Fermi level splitting is 10 to 40 meV too low for a typical broadening of the emission spectrum. However, radiative efficiency presents an ideal tool to compare different materials without determining the quasi Fermi level splitting. For comparison with the open circuit voltage, a fit of the high energy slope to generalised Planck’s law gives more reliable results if the fitted temperature, i.e. the slope of the high energy part, is close to the actual measurement temperature. Generalised Planck’s law also allows the extraction of a non-absolute absorptance spectrum, which enables a comparison between the emission maximum energy and the absorption edge. We discuss the errors and the indications when they are negligible and when not. [less ▲]

We report an environmentally friendly inkjet-printed indium sulfide (In2S3) buffer layer using benign chemistry and processing conditions. A pre-synthesized indium-thiourea compound is dissolved in a mixture of water and ethanol, inkjet printed on a Cu(In,Ga)(S,Se)2 absorber and annealed in air. The buffer layer shows a β-In2S3 structure with few organic impurities and band gap in the range of 2.3 eV. An ultraviolet ozone treatment applied to the surface of the absorber prior to inkjet printing of the precursor is used to improve the wettability of the ink and therefore the surface coverage of the buffer on the absorber layer. The device with a fully covering In2S3 layer shows better open circuit voltage and fill factor than the device with a partially covering In2S3 layer. The best In2S3 device showed a light to electric power conversion efficiency similar to the reference cadmium sulfide buffer layer device. Good wettability conditions are therefore essential for higher efficiency solar cells when the buffer layer is inkjet-printed. [less ▲]

Post-device heat treatment (HT) in chalcopyrite [Cu(In,Ga)(S,Se)2] solar cells is known to improve the performance of the devices. However, this HT is only beneficial for devices made with absorbers grown under Cu-poor conditions but not under Cu excess.. We present a systematic study to understand the effects of HT on CuInSe2 and CuInS2 solar cells. The study is performed for CuInSe2 solar cells grown under Cu-rich and Cu-poor chemical potential prepared with both CdS and Zn(O,S) buffer layers. In addition, we also study Cu-rich CuInS2 solar cells prepared with the suitable Zn(O,S) buffer layer. For Cu-poor selenide device low-temperature HT leads to passivation of bulk, whereas in Cu-rich devices no such passivation was observed. The Cu-rich devices are hampered by a large shunt. The HT decreases shunt resistance in Cu-rich selenides, whereas it increases shunt resistance in Cu-rich sulfides.. The origin of these changes in device performance was investigated with capacitance-voltage measurement which shows the considerable decrease in carrier concentration with HT in Cu-poor CuInSe2, and temperature dependent current-voltage measurements show the presence of barrier for minority carriers. Together with numerical simulations, these findings support a highly-doped interfacial p+ layer device model in Cu-rich selenide absorbers and explain the discrepancy between Cu-poor and Curich device performance. Our findings provide insights into how the same treatment can have a completely different effect on the device depending on the composition of the absorber. [less ▲]
