A Study on Optical and Electrical Properties of Solar Cells of a-Si1-XGeX:H



The AMPS-ID program is used to investigate optical and electrical properties of the solar cell of a-SiC:H/a-Si1-xGex:H/a-Si:H thin films. The short circuit current density, open circuit voltage, fill factor and conversion efficiency of the solar cell are investigated. For x=0.1, the conversion efficiency of the solar cell achieve maximum 9.19 % at the a-Si1-xGex:H thickness of 340 nm.
