The correlation between the increasing Cu content and the Na diffusion from the substrate is studied during multi-stage co-evaporation of Cu(In,Ga)Se2 onto Mo/float glass. The results suggest an affinity of Na for material phases with a Cu-poor composition. The presence of Cu-Se secondary phases seems not to be necessary in order to achieve grain growth. However, “recrystallization” under Cu-excess is still necessary to achieve high device performances.
