Download Advanced Characterization Techniques for Thin Film Solar by Daniel Abou-Ras, Thomas Kirchartz, Uwe Rau PDF

By Daniel Abou-Ras, Thomas Kirchartz, Uwe Rau

The booklet makes a speciality of complex characterization tools for thin-film sunlight cells that experience confirmed their relevance either for educational and company photovoltaic study and improvement. After an creation to thin-film photovoltaics, hugely skilled specialists document on machine and fabrics characterization tools comparable to electroluminescence research, capacitance spectroscopy, and numerous microscopy equipment. within the ultimate a part of the booklet simulation ideas are awarded that are used for ab-initio calculations of proper semiconductors and for equipment simulations in 1D, second and 3D.

Building on a confirmed inspiration, this re-creation additionally covers thermography, temporary optoelectronic equipment, and absorption and photocurrent spectroscopy.

These include Si thin films grown by liquid-phase crystallization, vacuum- or solution-processed kesterites (Cu2 ZnSn(S,Se)4 ), organic absorber layers, and in particular a completely new family of solution-processible photovoltaic absorber materials, which have reached astonishingly high efficiencies. This material family is a particular type of perovskites, comprising an organic molecule, a metal, and a halogen on different lattice positions. In spite of their already high conversion efficiencies of more than 20%, solar cells based on perovskite absorbers face numerous challenges such as stability and toxicity of the materials.
