The spectral response of the open-circuit voltage: a new characterization tool for solar cells

Mackel, Helmut; Cuevas, Andres


This paper explores the possibility of measuring the open-circuit voltage of a solar cell as a function of wavelength as a tool for device characterization. Theoretical calculations and computer simulations show that the spectral response of the open-circuit voltage exhibits a similar dependence to the spectral response of the short-circuit current. Experimental studies on silicon solar cells confirmed the strong spectral dependence of the open-circuit voltage. The spectral measurements have...[Show more]
