Title:
Modeling and simulation of In 1-x GaAs x nanowire solar cells 
Abstract:
In this paper, we investigate the electrical and optical properties of novel InGaAs nanowire solar cells. Key features like high optical absorption and excellent charge carrier mobility make them an attractive candidate to established solar cell technologies. The aim of our study is gain a deeper understanding of the underlying physics involved and to identify the limiting factors in the device under study. We perform a detailed simulation study of a fabricated nanowire structure under typical i...    »
