SUPERLATTICES AND MULTILAYER STRUCTURES FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY SOLAR CELLS.

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Possible applications of superlattices to photovoltaic structures are discussed. A new concept based on doping superstructures (NIPI) can be exploited to significantly reduce recombination losses in III-V compound solar cells. A novel multijunction structure with lateral current transport is proposed. A computer simulation has been performed which shows that by optimizing the multilayer structure, short circuit current is substantially increased with minimum drop in open circuit voltage.
