Title: Liquid precursor inks for deposition of In--Se, Ga--Se and In--Ga--Se

Abstract

An ink includes a solution of selenium in ethylene diamine solvent and a solution of at least one metal salt selected from the group consisting of an indium salt or a gallium salt in at least one solvent including an organic amide. The organic amide can include dimethylformamide. The organic amide can include N-methylpyrrolidone.
