Solar Cells Lecture 2: Physics of Crystalline Solar Cells

Views:39263|Rating:4.78|View Time:1:10:9Minutes|Likes:108|Dislikes:5Solar cell performance is determined by generation (of electron-hole pairs by the incident illumination) and recombination of electron-hole pairs. Efficiency is increased by increasing generation and decreasing recombination. This tutorial focussing on recombination losses in crystalline silicon solar cells under short-circuit and open-circuit conditions, but the general concepts apply more broadly than just to […]
