Attempts to fabricate new CuIn1-xBxSe2 (CIBS) and CuBSe2 (CBS) thin-film materials have been complicated by the formation of interfering crystallites and by the loss of boron from the magnetron sputtered precursor alloys during the selenization and annealing processes. Raman and Auger spectroscopic analysis as well as X-ray diffraction studies show that the formation of boron selenide may be contributing to the difficulty in creating these new materials.
