Abstract [en]

Tantalum diffusion barrier coatings were investigated as a way to improve the conversion efficiency of CIGS (copper indium gallium diselenide) solar cells.  Tantalum coatings were deposited upon silicon and stainless steel foil substrates using direct current magnetron sputtering (DcMS) and high power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS).  The coatings were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM).  Cross-sectional scanning electron micrographs revealed that the HiPIMS coatings appeared denser than the DcMS coatings.
