Optimization of poly crystalline Cu-In-Se (CIS) material for the bottom cell in a photovoltaic system, targeting highest efficiency modules > 35%.
This master thesis/ internship topic studies the fabrication of CIS materials on glass substrates using a two-step process, developing them to solar cell devices and opto-electronically characterizing them. In addition to the device processing, tasks include the following:
The other main objective is to understand CIS thinfilms' growth dynamics under different processing conditions. For that, different characterizations data will be linked to the growth of the absorber to finally optimize the absorber quality for solar cell applications.
The work is highly experimental in nature (85%) and requires independent literature research (15%) at different stages. This makes the project an ideal steppingstone for those looking for process engineering roles.
The work will be primarily carried out at imec premises at Energyville, in Genk.
