The physics of lattice defects in kesterite structured Cu2ZnSnS4 and Cu2ZnSnSe4 and chalcopyrite structured CuInSe2 and CuGaSe2 crystals is investigated and compared based on the first-principles calculations. The influence of shallow acceptor defects, deep donor defects and charge-compensated defect clusters on the non-stoichiometry, hole carrier concentration and solar cell efficiency of these materials is revealed.
