Title: CIGS Thin-Film Solar Cell Research at NREL: FY04 Results and Accomplishments

CIGS Thin-Film Solar Cell Research at NREL: FY04 Results and Accomplishments This short paper is a summary of our investigations in three major areas: high-efficiency CuInGaSe2 (CIGS) solar cells, junctions made using chemical bath deposited ZnS(O,OH) buffer layers, and solar cells fabricated from thinner absorbers. Significant progress was made in all areas. We describe how our research has contributed to the fundamental understanding and the practical application of CIGS materials to high performance solar cells.
