These experiments were designed as a first step toward developing more cost efficient solar cells. To realize this goal, low cost fabrication techniques to deposit thin polycrystalline films of materials necessary to create photo-voltaic cells various must be developed. Our technique involves using an unique deposition system that has been under development at UW-Eau Claire. This system incorporates a unique plasma source with capabilities that, in theory, should allow the deposition of crystalline films at low substrate temperatures on a variety of substrates. These initial experiments were designed to investigate whether photovoltaic devices can be fabricated with this system.
