The efficiency of Cu(In,Ga)Se2 (CIGS) thin-film solar cells might be further improved by the use of alternatives compared to the CdS buffer layer as well as by changing the gallium concentration within the CIGS absorber. In order to investigate the influence of these modifications on the potential distribution through all the layers of the devices, Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy (KPFM) on CIGS cross sections is employed. Potential distributions for three different Ga concentrations of the absorber and for different solution-grown buffer layer materials (CdS, Zn(O,S) and InxSy) are compared, enabling conclusions about the influence of the mentioned parameters on the diffusion voltage and the Fermi energy within the absorber.
