Carrier Recombination in Multicrystalline Silicon: A Study using Photoluminescence Imaging
This thesis applies photoluminescence imaging technique to study various carrier recombination mechanisms in multicrystalline silicon materials. One emphasis of the work has been recombination at grain boundaries, which is one of the limiting factors for the performance of multicrystalline silicon solar cells. An approach for quantifying the recombination activities of a grain boundary in terms of its effective surface recombination velocity, based on the...[Show more]
