Abstract

The improvement of solar cell efficiency requires device optimization, including the careful design of contacts and doping profiles, and the implementation of light trapping strategies. In this context, electro-optical numerical simulation is essential to analyze the physical mechanisms that limit the cell efficiency and lead to design trade-offs. In this work we discuss the calibration of the relevant physical models for electrical simulation and we put in evidence important limitations of the most common adopted optical simulators. © 2011 IEEE.
