The aim of this investigation is to apply advanced microstructural characterization techniques to study the effects of varying the cadmium chloride annealing temperature on the microstructure of cadmium telluride solar cells deposited by close spaced sublimation (CSS) and relate this to cell performance. A range of techniques have been used to observe the morphological changes to the microstructure as well as the chemical and crystallographic changes as a function of treatment parameters… CONTINUE READING
