  17. CdTe/CdS-BASED PHOTODIODE ARRAYS VIA SELECTIVE-AREA, CLOSE-SPACED SUBLIMATION

    07 Dec 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Arev Gabriel Escobedo

    In this talk, the deposition of dense arrays of CdTe/CdS photodiodes, via close-spaced sublimation, is presented for the first time. The previously reported ordered polycrystalline method was used to fabricate the photodiode arrays with the feature size ranging from 1 to 2 micrometers on a pitch...

  18. Design of Optoelectronically-active Polymers for Organic Photovoltaic Applications

    01 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Bryan W. Boudouris

    Organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices are of great interest due to their promise of providing flexible, lightweight, and inexpensive alternatives to their currently-used inorganic counterparts. However, large-scale implementation of these modules has been hampered due to their relatively low power...

  19. Diffusion-Reaction Modeling of Cu Migration in CdTe Solar Devices

    26 Oct 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Da GUO, Tian Fang, Richard Akis, Dragica Vasileska

    IWCE 2015 presentation. In this work, we report on development of one-dimensional (1D) finite-difference and two- dimensional (2D) finite-element diffusion-reaction simulators to investigate mechanisms behind Cu- related metastabilities observed in CdTe solar cells [1]. The evolution of CdTe...
