Abstract


Micro- and nanoparticles were synthesized and stabilized in order to process a copper indium diselenide (CISe) solar cell absorber layer. A microwave assisted solvothermal reaction for In2Se3 particles was performed, finding that smaller particles could be obtained in shorter times and at lower temperatures than with a conventional autoclave based solvothermal synthesis. In a second route In2Se3 and Cu2-xSe nanoparticles have been synthesized via aqueous redox reactions and been Zeta potential-stabilized to acquire a nanoparticulate ink. This ink was drop cast in ambient atmosphere and annealed in N2 -atmosphere leading to the formation of CISe at lower temperatures than with state-of-the-art processing routes.
