EBSD orientation distribution map of Si thin film
 
 
 

SEM image EBSD orientation distribution and pattern-
quality maps, also with Σ3 grain boundaries highlighted
by red lines as well as a panchromatic CL image, all acquired
at the identical position of a ZnO/CdS/ CuGaSe2/Mo/glass
cross-section specimen (see also: Abou-Ras et al.,
Sol. En. Mat. Sol. Cells 95 (2011) 1452)


SEM image (a), EBSD orientation-distribution map (b) with local orientations given by colors
(see legend), and EBIC image acquired at 8 keV (c) on the identical sample position of a
polished cross-section of a Cu(In,Ga)Se2 thin-film solar cell. The white arrows indicate the
position of the extracted EBIC profiles shown in (d). See also: Nichterwitz et al., Thin Solid Films
