CuInSe2 thin films were prepared by stoichiometric evaporation of each of its constituent elements on a glass substrate, and subsequent processing by a non-coherent light source. Several films were produced, changing one parameter at a time in the process. The optical and structural properties of the obtained films were then analyzed, using optical absorption and Raman scattering spectroscopies. The results revealed that this Incoherent Light Assisted technique for semiconducting thin films is a promising and inexpensive alternative.
