Abstract: Copper indium diselenide polycrystalline films of p-, i- and n-type electrical conductivity were deposited on Molybdenum (metal strip and sputtered on Si-wafer) from a single bath using direct-current and pulse-plating deposition, at cathodic potential ranging -0.3V to -1.3V, with a thickness between 100-200nm. Electrochemical deposition mechanism results were correlated using Energy-Dispersive-X-ray Spectroscopy and X-Ray-Diffraction. Scanning-Electron-Microscopy was employed for surface morphology studies and Photoelectrochemical cell for p/i/n-type films conductivity. Photovoltage results indicate that p- and n-type CIS layers can be obtained by varying deposition potential under DC-plating at room temperature, pulse-plating at room temperature and 40?C on Mo-wafer. Generally, p-type can be obtained at relatively high potential of -0.3V and -0.7V, where n-type at more negative deposition potentials. To form a complete p-i-n junction from a single bath, pulse-plating at 40?C is recommended with negative plating limiting to pulse cycled from -0.3V (p-type) to -0.7V (intrinsic) and finally to -1.1V (n-type).
