In the present thesis by publication loss mechanisms in industrially processed chalcopyrite thin film solar cells of the conventional ZnO:Al/i-ZnO/CdS/Cu(In,Ga)(Se,S)2/Mo layer structure investigated. The results of this thesis were obtained within two independent projects with different industry partners each applying principally different processing technologies. In samples from (1) the sequential deposition-reaction process the sulfur composition of the annealing atmosphere was varied in order to realize a double band gap grading. (2) Devices from different co-evaporation chambers processed under nominal equal conditions yielded strong deviations in performance. A comprehensive characterization procedure was devised and applied in order to strategically identify the loss mechanisms in the solar cells. This procedure revealed that the performance in devices from both processing methods was determined by the specifics of the bandgap grading and the concentration of mid-gap defects.
