A contactless photoconductance technique to evaluate the quantum efficiency of solar cell emitters

Cuevas, Andres; Sinton, R.A.; Kerr, Mark; MacDonald, Daniel; Mackel, Helmut


A new technique, the spectral response of the steady-state photoconductance, is proposed for solar cell characterisation in research and development. The emphasis of this paper is on the evaluation of the carrier collection efficiency of the emitter region based on a simple, two-wavelength approach. We show that in addition to the well-established determination of the wafer recombination properties that results from a long-wavelength photoconductance measurement, detailed emitter...[Show more]
