In this paper, the influence of CuCl doping process parameters on the performance of solar cells was studied. The devices were fabricated with graded CdSeTe/CdTe absorber. The critical parameters for CuCl doping process were identified and varied in a 2-level 3-factor statistically designed experiment. The analysis of response data generated from the performance of the devices was analyzed using JMP software. The performances of devices with 19%+ revealed two different optimal processing conditions for CuCl doping.
