SC01 – Built-in electric field in irregular morphologies of bulk-heterojunction solar cells

Flores-Contreras I. C., Cabrera-Arenas V., Reséndiz-Mendoza L. M.

This paper theoretically analyzes the built-in electric field distribution in bulk heterojunction solar cells. The approach proposed leads to explore the impact of regular and irregular morphologies on the performance of these devices. The width of the depletion region at the donor-acceptor interface is set by the doping concentration. The proposed analysis resulted in the […]

SC03 – Simulation and Optimization of Nano-structured Gratings Alternative of Thin-film Anti-Reflectors for GaAs Solar Cells Conversion Efficiency Improvement

Das N., Sharma A., Khairul Basar M., Nur-E-Alam M.

Modern civilization demands energy, and the energy demand is increasing almost every day all over the world. The dependency on conventional energy resources including fossil fuel, oil, gas, coal etc. are not in favor of having sustainable global earth. For this reason, renewable or clean energy is one only option while acquiring energy from the […]

SC04 – Performance Evaluation of Lead-Free Cs2CuSbCl6 Perovskite Solar Cells for > 21.67% Efficiency

Kumar A., Thomas M. S., Gupta N., Jain A.

This work investigates the performance of Cs2CuSbCl6-based lead-free perovskite solar cells for photovoltaic applications. Cs2CuSbCl6 has a bandgap of 1.7eV and it is a durable and non-toxic material. Cs2CuSbCl6 can absorb more photons and thus obtain high efficiency. This work has been performed using SCAPS-1D software with the focus on optimizing the absorber layer thickness […]

SC05 – Highly Efficient Dome Shaped Nanowires Solar Cell

El-Bashar R., Hameed M. F. O., Obayya S. S. A.

The optical characteristics of Si dome-tapered nanowires (NWs) solar cell (SC) are reported and analyzed by using finite difference time domain method. The geometrical parameters are studied to maximize the light absorption and hence the ultimate efficiency and short circuit current density of the reported NWs SC. The dome-shaped NWs show better absorption enhancement than […]
