Advanced solar cells

Advanced architectures for silicon based solar cells theoretically analyzed by means of accurate TCAD simulation.

Advanced architectures for silicon based solar cells are theoretically analyzed by means of accurate physics-based electro-optical numerical simulation with model parameters identified by accurate comparison with experimental data, including the dark and illuminated I_V cell characteristics and external quantum efficiency.


Several technological options have been studied such as: Passivated Emitter and Rear Cells (PERC), Metal and Emitter Wrap Through (MWT/EWT), Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) and concentration silicon solar cells. In addition, silicon heterojunction nanowire based thin-film solar cells have been studied.


Innovative solutions for the realization of the front contacts and light/current-induced degradation phenomena are investigated in collaboration with Applied Materials Italia srl.
