This is why methods such as scanning probe techniques (Chapter 11) as well as electron microscopy and its related techniques (Chapter 12) gain increasing importance in the ﬁeld. X-ray and neutron diﬀraction (Chapter 13) and Raman spectroscopy (Chapter 14) contribute to the analysis of structural properties of photovoltaic materials. Since thin-ﬁlm solar cells consist of layer stacks with interfaces and surfaces, important issues are the analyses of their chemical and electronic properties, which may be studied by means of soft X-ray and electron spectroscopy (Chapter 15).

As a consequence, there is a growing demand for skilled scientiﬁc staﬀ entering the ﬁeld who will face a multitude of challenging scientiﬁc and technological questions. Thin-ﬁlm photovoltaics aims for the highest conversion eﬃciencies and lowest possible cost. Therefore, a profound understanding of corresponding solar-cell devices and photovoltaic materials applied is a major prerequisite for any further progress in this challenging ﬁeld. In recent years, a wide and continuously increasing variety of sophisticated and rather specialized analysis techniques originating from very diﬀerent directions of physics, chemistry, or materials science have been applied in order to extend the scientiﬁc base of thin-ﬁlm photovoltaics.
