Abstract

From this research, we report on the performances of Cu(In,Ga) Se 2 (CIGS) thin film solar cells device simulation of the carrier concentration and thickness of CdS buffer layer which were respectively varied from 1012 to 1020 cm-3 and 10 nm to 100 nm, to find out an optimum thickness of around 40-50 nm of high-efficiency CdS buffer layer, the optimum of carrier concentration is found to be 1017 cm-3 revealed the best efficiency of 18.20%.
