Chalcogenide thin film solar cells, based on cadmium telluride and copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) are giving the highest efficiencies in thin film solar cell technologies, with respectively 17.3 % and 20.3 %. Large scale developments are presently taking place. The presentation will recall the main characteristics of these technologies and their evolution as a function of time. The status of state of the art devices will be presented with a special focus on CIGS devices. Absorber and buffer layer issues will be dicussed in order to increase the efficiency of the cells. Deposition methods will also be discussed which range from classical high vacuum physical de position to atmospheric methods like electrodeposition. perspectives with new compounds like copper zinc tin selenide will be also presented as an alternative for the future large scale production stage.
