A critical assessment of the thermochemical and phase diagram data for the Cu-In-Se system has been initiated. This report includes assessment of the Se unary, In-Se binary and Cu-Se binary systems. Based on these assessments and a previously published one [7] for the Cu-In system a preliminary evaluation of the the Cu,Se-In,Se3 pseudobinary phase diagram is proposed. The results of these analyses were applied to the calculation of the flux from a selenium effusion cell used for depositing CIS
