According to the abstract released by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office: "A method for preparing CIGS absorber layers using CIGS nanoparticles on a substrate comprises one or more annealing steps that involve heating the CIGS nanoparticle film(s) to dry the film and possibly to fuse the CIGS nanoparticles together to form CIGS crystals. Generally, at least the final annealing step will induce particle fusion to form CIGS crystals. Reactive gas annealing has been found to facilitate the growth of larger...
