A re-evaluation of transparent conductor requirements for thin-film solar cells

Jacobs, Daniel; Catchpole, Kylie; Beck, Fiona; White, Thomas


The needs of thin-film solar cells are a significant driver in transparent conductor research, making it vital that these requirements are properly understood. Here we demonstrate that the oft-quoted need for sheet resistances less than 10 Ω sq−1 arises only when the addition of a metal grid is unfeasible, and for cells of a particular size. In addition we show that the performance of a highly transparent layer with a metal grid is generally superior to that of a single layer fulfilling the 10...[Show more]
