III-V Tandem Cell

solarex03.in : III-V Tandem Cell

Requires: Blaze/Luminous
Minimum Versions: Atlas 5.24.1.R

This example demonstrates the use of non-local band-to-band tunneling to model the tunnel diode in a tandem cell. Without special attention to this junction the device will behave as a thyristor with very non-physical parasitic transistor behavior.

This example will show the specification of an auxiliary quantum tunneling mesh. Such a mesh is required to model quantum tunneling.

The example also shows you how to specify the usage and sampling of a multispectral source such as AM1.5 or AM0.

The model will also show how to enable non-local band-to-band tunneling, NLBBT .
