The electrical properties of (CdZn)S/CuInSe2 solar cells have been investigated by combining electron beam induced current measurements and capacitance-voltage measurements on the same device. In the as-grown device, the CuInSe2 is lightly doped n type. After baking to about 225°C in vacuum, the CuInSe2 converts to p type forming the heterojunction. Oxygen does not appear to be necessary for type conversion to occur.
