Sammanfattning : In this thesis, alternative back contacts for Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) thin film solar cells were investigated. Back contacts for two different configurations were studied, namely traditional single-junction cells with opaque back contacts and transparent back contacts for possible use in either tandem or bifacial solar cell configuration.

2. Annealing of Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 Thin Films : A Study of Secondary Compounds and Their Effects on Solar Cells
Sammanfattning : Kesterite Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) is interesting as a sustainable photovoltaic technology due to its earth-abundant elements and suitable semiconducting properties. To date, a record efficiency of 12.6% has been achieved but further improvements are required to reach high efficiency for industrial implementation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis is to understand the influence of the deposition process and resulting film properties on Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) thin film solar cells. Two main aspects are studied, namely formation of absorber precursors by sputtering, and alternative Cd-free buffer materials with improved band alignment. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Thin film chalcogenide solar cells are promising photovoltaic technologies. Cu(In,Ga)Se2 (CIGS)-based devices are already produced at industrial scale and record laboratory efficiency surpasses 22 %. Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 (CZTS) is an alternative material that is based on earth-abundant elements. LÄS MER
5. Microscopic Characterisation of Solar Cells : An Electron Microscopy Study of Cu(In,Ga)Se2 and Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 Solar Cells
Sammanfattning : The sun provides us with a surplus of energy convertible to electricity using solar cells. This thesis focuses on solar cells based on chalcopyrite (CIGSe) as well as kesterite (CZTS(e)) absorber layers. These materials yield record efficiencies of 20.4 % and 11. LÄS MER
