As part of the effort to increase the contribution of solar cells (photovoltaics) to our energy mix, this book addresses three main areas: making existing technology cheaper, promoting advanced technologies based on new architectural designs, and developing new materials to serve as light absorbers. Leading scientists throughout the world create a fundamental platform for knowledge sharing that combines the physics, materials, and device architectures of high-efficiency solar cells. While providing a comprehensive introduction to the field, the book highlights directions for further research, and is intended to stimulate readersa€™ interest in the development of novel materials and technologies for solar energy applications.The large values of Imext make it possible to use the edge luminescence of c-Si in Si-based optoelectronic devices. ... length (LD) (i.e., the parameters defining the characteristics of many semiconductor devices including solar cells). ... In a basis of luminescent methods for determining I„ and LD lies the dependence of the radiative recombination rate in a unit volume of semiconductor (R) on the free carrieranbsp;...
