Recombination in compensated crystalline silicon for solar cells
Deliberate compensation of crystalline silicon results in a decrease in the equilibrium carrier concentration, which leads to an increased carrier lifetime for the intrinsic recombination processes of Auger and radiative recombination. We present modeling which reveals that compensation also often leads to a significant increase in lifetime for recombination through defects via the Shockley–Read–Hall mechanism, a conclusion which is confirmed experimentally for the case of interstitial iron in...[Show more]
