Cu(In,Ga)Se2 solar cells yield one of the highest efficiencies among all thin film photovoltaics. Compositional variations of the absorber elements as well as incorporated alkali elements significantly affect the conversion efficiency. Hence there is a strong need to determine the composition spatially resolved.
High resolution synchrotron based methods like X-ray fluorescence analysis (XRF) and X-ray beam induced current (XBIC) enable insight into such compositional and functional variations. Simultaneous XRF and XBIC measurements of complete solar cells were conducted in plan-view geometry: The highly focused X-ray nanobeam at the ID16B-NA station of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility scanned the solar cell and by analyzing the emitted X-Ray fluorescence radiation together with the corresponding induced current correlating maps are obtained. As the spatial resolution is about 50 nm, we can show how different elemental compositions, grains and grain boundaries influence the measured current.
