(MENAFN- Ameliorate Digital Consultancy)
Sunlight is converted into electrical energy using a thin film solar cell called a CIGS, which stands for copper indium gallium selenide. With electrodes on the back and front to collect current, cigs thin film solar cells market are created by depositing a thin layer of indium, copper, selenide, and gallium on a plastic backing or glass. Since CIGS absorbs sunlight strongly and has a high absorption coefficient, a thin film of this material is needed to produce the same amount of electric energy as semiconductor materials.
The thin-film photovoltaic technologies consists of three mainstreams namely amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride and CIGS. Like other materials in the thin-film photovoltaic technologies, CIGS is also flexible, that allows them to get deposited on the flexible substrates. Also the best performance of the solar cells comes from the glass deposited cells, as all the technologies use high temperature depositions.
The performance of polysilicon-based panels are higher than these glass based technologies of solar cells, though advances in CIGS low temperature deposition is trying to erase these performance difference up to a great extent. CIGS Thin-film solar cells market is expected to expand at a healthy CAGR in the forecast period.
