Thin-film solar cells such as Cu(In,Ga)Se2 (CIGS) offer an alternative to the widely spread silicon technology. Electroreflectance (ER) spectroscopy is a non-destructive tool enabling the investigation of their electronic properties. For instance, both the bandgap energy of absorber and buffer layer can be determined.
In this contribution, we present a numerical procedure developed to calculate ER spectra based on the model described in . Electronic effects are modelled by SCAPS  and subsequently the modulated reflection signal is calculated using a transfer-matrix method. We further improve the simulation to achieve quantitative agreement with measured ER spectra and show applications of the procedure. Comparison of simulations with measured ER spectra allow for a conclusive interpretation of the experimental results.
