We report a new certified world-record efficiency for thin-film Cu(In,Ga)Se2-based photovoltaic sub-modules of 17.4%(aperture area). The record efficiency of the 16 cm2, monolithically integrated, sub-module has been independently confirmedby Fraunhofer ISE. The record device is the result of extensive co-optimization of all processing steps. Duringthe optimization process, strong focus has been put on the scalability of processes to cost-effective mass production, asreflected, for example, in Cu(In,Ga)Se2 deposition time and substrate temperature. Device manufacturing as well as resultsof electrical and material characterization is discussed.
