Abstract

Cu(In,Ga)Se 2 (CIGS) semiconducting thin films films were prepared by electrodeposition from aqueous solution containing CuCl 2, InCl 3, GaCl 3 and H 2SeO 3. The deposited material was characterized by cyclic voltammetry. The compositional, structural studies were carried out using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis (EDX), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray analysis showed the formation of CuIn 1-xGa xSe 2 films, in the optimum conditions, with preferred orientation in the (112) direction. We observed a shift of the peaks to higher angles with increasing x, accounting for a decrease of the lattice constants when In atoms are substituted by Ga atoms. Element mapping and scanline (EDX) indicate that the Cu, In, Ga, and Se elements are homogeneously distributed.
