Complete utilization of "light" and "carrier" by the control of interface between surface layer and photovoltaic materials

Research Project Outline

It is necessary to utilize incident "light" and generated "carrier" completely for the ultimate benefit of the photovoltaic potential. In this study, we establish a novel physical model for the losses of light and carriers at the interface between surface layer and photovoltaic materials. We also explore novel materials for the surface layer by using combinatorial technique. Our aim is to promote a high convergent efficiency photovoltaic based on the novel physical model and materials.
