CIGS thin film technology : from material to module

Abstract
Photovoltaic field is an exciting domain where advanced research is close to industrial R&D. In spite of a negative economic context in USA and Europe, some technologies would become a real challenger to replace silicon modules in the close future. Second generation of photovoltaic modules known as thin films technologies is expected to have better efficiency and a lower cost than silicon. My presentation will be on one of the second generation materials :  CuInGaSe2 (CIGS).

After a
general introduction of photovoltaic, the presentation will first focus on the CIGS material : deposition techniques, intrinsic properties, stoichiometry control and the role of impurities. Then I will describe heterojunction solar cell and give the key to understand how CIGS solar cell world record efficiency reaches 20.4%. Finally I will introduce thin film modules compared to silicon module and explain the strength of this technology: monolithic interconnection.

Brief CV
PhD graduation in december 2009 : Deposition of transparent conductive oxides thin films by infrared-assisted spray CVD for photovoltaic purposes.
After his PhD at Arts & Métiers ParisTech (France), Jérôme Garnier started to investigate CIGS (Copper-Indium-Gallium-Selenium) a post-doc at CEA - Liten Grenoble.
Then he went to industry, working as research engineer at Screen Solar company (Montagnole, France).
Hi is now back to academic research in the ME group of LMGP.
