Fabrication and characterization of elongate solar cells

Fong, Kean Chern


This thesis concerns fabrication of elongated silicon solar cells, together with development and application of supporting characterization techniques. Analysis of J-V curves can reveal considerable detail about recombination in a solar cell. In Chapter 2, the effects of the major recombination mechanisms on the J-V curve are described, taking into account surface, bulk and depletion region. The local ideality factor (m) is derived analytically as a function of operating voltage, and shown to...[Show more]
