Electron Microscopy of Thin Film Inorganic and Organic Photovoltaic Materials

Abstract

Scanning and transmission electron microscopy have played an important role in the progress made by photovoltaic devices over the past two decades. With thin-film photovoltaic (PV) devices now accounting for more than 20 % of total PV sales, this chapter reviews the important insights into PV materials gleaned from electron microscopy.
