Title:
Modeling of silicon heterojunction solar cells 
Abstract:
Here we present modeling results on crystalline Si (c-Si)/amorphous Si (a-Si) heterojunction solar cells using a physical simulation which includes various models for the defect states in the a-Si barriers, as well as explicit models for the ITO emitter contact. We investigate the impact of the band offsets and barrier heights of the a-Si/c-Si interface, particularly in terms of the open circuit voltage. It is also shown that the solar cell performance is sensitively dependent on the quality of...    »
