Low temperature nano particle preparation and deposition for phase-controlled compound film formation

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #7537955.

The present invention is directed to different methods used in the formation of an ink, as well as being directed to the formation of layers used in the fabrication of a solar cell, particularly the absorber layer. In one embodiment, the invention is directed to formulating an ink comprising Cu-rich particles and solid Ga--In particles, wherein the step of formulating is carried out at a temperature such that no liquid phase is present within the solid Ga-In particles. In another embodiment, the specific steps taken during the formulation of the ink are described. In yet another embodiment, the process of using the formulated ink to obtain a precursor layer are described.
