Electronically-coupled up-conversion: an alternative approach to impurity photovoltaics in crystalline silicon

MacDonald, Daniel; McLean, Kate; Deenapanray, Prakash; De Wolf, Stefan; Schmidt, Jan


The traditional approach to harnessing the impurity-photovoltaic effect to improve solar cell performance is plagued by additional recombination caused by the impurity centres. This extra recombination channel is usually deemed to outweigh the benefits of additional generation of electron-hole pairs via sub-band-gap absorption through the impurity levels. Here we consider an alternative approach that restricts the impurity levels to a film with a wider band gap at the rear of a solar cell,...[Show more]
