Sentaurus Resources for Frozen Potential Analysis of Solar Cells
29 Sep 2014 | Contributor(s):: Jim Moore
Two Sentaurus simulation examples demonstrating injection and photocurrent separation using frozen potentials. Includes an example for a simple p-i-n cell and a CIGS/CdS heterojunction cell, as well as Matlab scripts for plotting the results. Documentation is included in the form of the...
Bulk Heterojunction Device Model Simulator Package
20 May 2013 | Contributor(s):: Adrien Pierre, Shaofeng Lu, Ian Howard, Antonio Facchetti, Ana Claudia Arias
This is a simulation package for bulk heterojunction organic photovoltaics from J. Appl. Phys. 113, 154506 (2013). The carrier concentration boundary conditions, mobility, exciton quenching efficiency, optical constants, dielectric constants and recombination rates can be entered into the...
SOLAR CELLS: From Basics to Advanced Systems
15 Feb 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Chenming Calvin Hu, Richard M. White
This book is intended both as a self-learning resource or professional reference and as a text for use in an undergraduate or first-year graduate course. A key feature of the book is modular organization. The twelve chapters, each containing problems and a reference list, may be read in almost...

Two dimensional spice simulation of thin film solar panels, including shunt induced variability, and partial shadow effects.
NEGF theory of quantum photovoltaic devices
21 Sep 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Urs Aeberhard
Many high-efficiency photovoltaics concepts require an advanced control and manipulation of the optoelectronic properties of the active device structure, leading to a prominent role of low dimensional absorbers such as quantum wells, wires and dots in the implementation of these concepts....
