Charge transport in hybrid silicon solar cells
Berlin, Germany (SPX) Aug 18, 2015
The system they investigated is based on conventional n-type silicon wafers coated with the highly conductive polymer mixture PEDOT:PSS and displays a power conversion efficiency of about 14 %. This combination of materials is currently extensively investigated by many teams in the research community. "We systematically surveyed the characteristic curves, the dark current as well as the capacitance of such devices using silicon wafers with different doping concentrations" explains Sara Jackle, lea ... read more
