Determination of cadmium in electrolyte solutions for production of CIS and CIGS solar cells

Hoveddokument

This Application Note describes the polarographic determination of cadmium in electroplating baths used in the production of copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) or copper indium diselenide thin-film solar cells (CIS). Cadmium sulfide (CdS) from the electrolyte solution is deposited as a thin film on the CIS or CIGS absorber layer via chemical bath deposition (CBD).
