Cu(In,Ga)Se-2 (CIGS) thin films were obtained by solgel method on sodalime glass substrates, economically. The optimum optical properties of CIGS thin films are obtained by varying the film layers. Besides, the solgel-derived CIGS thin films were thermally treated at different temperatures from 135 degrees C up to 200 degrees C. These results indicate that the transparent CIGS thin films derived by solgel process can be good candidates for the applications in optoelectronic devices.
