Analysis of Moisture and CO(2) Uptake in Anhydrous CdCl(2) Powders Used for Vapor CdCl(2) Treatment of CdS/CdTe PV Devices

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Water and CO(2) uptake in CdCl(2) powder precursors was investigated using thermogravimetric analysis/Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (TGA/FTIR). Exposure of powders under ambient conditions shows that a steady-state hydration level near 9% (by weight) is achieved after brief exposure to room air.
