Abstract


The formation of the compound semiconductor CuInSe2 by laser annealing of electroplated precursor films in inert gas atmosphere represents an entire non-vacuum production process of thin-film solar cell absorbers. Besides this technological aspect, the impact of extreme annealing rates on structural properties of the resulting semiconductor is interesting from a fundamental research point of view. For this reason, we compared absorbers processed by laser annealing with absorbers annealed with moderate heating rates in the range of 1 K/s by means of X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX). All absorbers processed with laser or furnace annealing consist of crystalline CuInSe2 in the chalcopyrite crystal structure with a high degree of cation disorder. We show that laser annealing does not lead to unintentional selenium loss during the semiconductor formation process. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
