Measuring and interpreting the lifetime of silicon wafers

Cuevas, Andres; MacDonald, Daniel

Description

The carrier lifetime is the most important electronic property of semiconductor materials for solar cells. In this paper we discuss traditional and novel methods for its experimental determination. Among the latter, the Quasi-steady-state photoconductance is particularly powerful since it permits measuring the injection level dependence of the lifetime. The analysis and interpretation of this dependence yields a wealth of information on the physical mechanisms that limit the performance of...[Show more]
