—In this study, manufacturing cost reduced for CIS
precursor solution from chloride series CuCl2, InCl3, GaCl3
mixed with acetone solvent without binder was discussed. CIS
thin films were coated on a substrate using this precursor
solution prepared at normal temperature and pressure by
Doctor Blade method. We observed that CIS crystals began to
form on the surface at 300°C and the surface and internal faults
were growing with increasing the temperature. The intensity of
main peak increased in CIS absorber layer.
