Title:
Simulation of carrier relaxation in hot carrier solar cells 
Abstract:
Hot carrier solar cells depend critically on the energy relaxation dynamics of photo-generated carriers in an absorber material, where hot carriers are extracted through energy selective contacts. Here we combine ensemble Monte Carlo (EMC) simulation with an energy balance equation approach, to simulate the microscopic carrier relaxation processes and corresponding electron and hole temperatures in semiconductor quantum well (QW) hot carrier solar cell structures, both under transient and steady...    »
