A study of quantum well solar cell structures with bound-to-continuum transitions for reduced carrier recombination

Jolley, G.; Faraone, L.; Fu, L.; Lu, H. F.; Tan, H. H.; Jagadish, C.


A bound-to-continuum quantum well solar cell structure is proposed, and the band structure and absorption spectra are analyzed by the use of an eight band k⋅p model. The structure is based on quantum wells that only support bound states for the valence band. The absence of bound conduction band states has a number of potential advantages, including a reduction of electron trapping and, therefore, a reduction of quantum well induced photocarrier recombination due to reduced spatial overlap of...[Show more]
