Polycrystalline Thin-Film Research: Copper Indium Gallium Diselenide

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


Copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) solar cells are one of the primary focuses of research by the Thin Film Material Science and Processing Group. The group develops processes and materials related to thin-film polycrystalline photovoltaic (PV) devices as well as the equipment required for routine analysis of these devices and materials. We work closely with other groups in the Materials Science Center to achieve a deeper understanding of thin-film materials and devices.
