During the late 1970s [89–92]. 1. The thin film materials were produced by dual-source thermal evaporation of the compound (CuInS2) and the chalcogen (S). 25%. During the 1990s, the University of Stuttgart extended their work on CIGS to CuInS2. The achievement of device efficiencies of over 10% [126] indicated the viability of CuInS2 as an 22 Organic Nanostructured Thin Film Devices and Coatings for Clean Energy important solar absorber material [129]. CuInS2 was prepared by thermal co-evaporation of the elements and was formed into a typical CIS device structure, ZnO:Al/CdS/CuInS2/Mo/glass.

Avellaneda et al. fabricated SnS-based PV cells with the configuration glass/SnO2:F/CdS/SnS/(CuS)/Ag using all chemically deposited layers. Although they produced cells with a Voc up to 400 mV, the Jsc was <1 mA/cm 2. A heat treatment in air at 423 K improved Jsc, but correspondingly Voc decreased. The most efficient cells had an open-circuit voltage of 340 mV with a short circuit current density of 6 mA/cm2 [195]. ZnO/SnS heterostructures have also been developed using all electrodeposited layers.

The need to heat the substrates also brings into consideration the need to minimize the different thermal expansion coefficients between the cell layers and that of the substrate. The highest efficiency devices have all used sodalime glass as the substrate. This material is available in large quantities and is the same as the float glass used for making windows in buildings. It has a smooth surface, is insulating, and is available at relatively low cost. The thermal expansion coefficient of soda-lime glass is typically ~10 −6 K−1, a good thermal match to CIS thin films [106].
