Thin Film Solar Cells: Research in an Industrial Perspective
2012 (English)In: Ambio, ISSN 0044-7447, Vol. 41, no Suppl 2, 112-118 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Electricity generation by photovoltaic conversion of sunlight is a technology in strong growth. The thin film technology is taking market share from the dominant silicon wafer technology. In this article, the market for photovoltaics is reviewed, the concept of photovoltaic solar energy conversion is discussed and more details are given about the present technological limitations of thin film solar cell technology. Special emphasis is given for solar cells which employ Cu(In,Ga)Se-2 and Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)(4) as the sunlight-absorbing layer.
