Amorphous Silicon with Defects : Amorphous Silicon with Defects

Requires: S-Pisces/Luminous
Minimum Versions: Atlas 5.24.1.R

In this example we compare the potential performance of a simple amorphous silicon solar cell with and without the inclusion of mid-bandgap defect states. The states are modeled donor and acceptor states with Gaussian bump distributions and exponential tail distributions. The defect distributions are specified on the DEFECT statement.

In this example, we use transfer matrix methods to model the optical problem. In this case we also sample the entire public domain AM1.5 spectrum. This demonstrates the efficiency of the transfer matrix approach.
