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).
