Title (EN) PHOTOVOLTAIC DEVICE AND METHOD OF FORMATION
(FR) DISPOSITIF PHOTOVOLTAÏQUE ET PROCÉDÉ DE FORMATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An improved photovoltaic device and methods of manufacturing the same that includes an interface layer adjacent to a semiconductor absorber layer, where the interface layer includes a material in the semiconductor layer which decreases in concentration from the side of the interface layer contacting the absorber layer to an opposite side of the interface layer.
(FR)La présente invention a trait à un dispositif photovoltaïque amélioré et à ses procédés de fabrication, lequel dispositif photovoltaïque inclut une couche d'interface qui est adjacente à une couche absorbante semi-conductrice, laquelle couche d'interface inclut un matériau dans la couche semi-conductrice dont la concentration diminue depuis le côté de la couche d'interface qui entre en contact avec la couche absorbante jusqu'au côté opposé de la couche d'interface.
