Correlated Analysis of Inorganic Solar Cells in and outside an Electron Microscope
The project “Correlated Analysis of Inorganic Solar Cells in and outside an electron microscope” aims to fabricate in-situ TEM cartridges for carrying out electrical measurements of CIGS solar cells. These chips will be universally adaptable, provide flexibility and significant advantages to the existing ones and will enable simultaneous experimentation both inside and outside the TEM. Subsequent to their fabrication they will be employed to the study of a solar cell device (CIGS) under near-operating conditions, providing unprecedented insight into relevant processes at grain boundaries and interfaces by using correlated multi-scale analysis with resolutions ranging from the atom to the entire device.
