This tool simulates a simple 1D solar cell of crystalline material with drift diffusion equations.

From the plot of the Power density, extract the maximum power, divide it with 43.4796 W/cm^2 and multiply by 100 to get the efficiency of the solar cell. Reduced spectrum is used to speed up the calculations. The tool with the complete spectrum will be installed over the summer.
