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;...
