Title: Technique for achieving large-grain Ag.sub.2ZnSn(S,Se).sub.4thin films

Techniques for increasing grain size in AZTSSe absorber materials are provided. In one aspect, a method for forming an absorber film on a substrate includes: contacting the substrate with an Ag source, a Zn source, a Sn source, and an S source and/or an Se source under conditions sufficient to form the absorber film on the substrate having a target composition of: Ag.sub.XZn.sub.YSn(S,Se).sub.Z, wherein 1.7
