Band-gap optimization for improvement cu(in,ga)se2 (cigs) solar cell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Tropical countries, such as Indonesia, need to consider the thread-off between high average solar irradiance throughout the year and the sporadic clouds due to the high rainfall in utilization of solar energy conversion Cu(In,Ga)Se2 (CIGS) with Polyimide substrate is known as one of the materials that produces significant power under low-light and cloudy condition. This 3rd generation solar cell is also promising for thin-film application. Due to Polyimide low thermal stability, a notch problem which significantly affected the current density (Jsc) arose. Single-graded flat-band structure was proven to be an option to solve this situation. In this research, further simulation was run to find the optimum design of this structure.
