Preparation of CIGS absorber layer

1. Preparation of Cu/In film by magnetron sputtering In order to accurately control the element ratio of Cu/In, CuIn film is prepared by co-sputtering method. That is, the Cu/In alloy target and the In elemental target are simultaneously sputtered in the same sputtering chamber. The distribution of Cu/In content has a great influence on the...
