Analysis of Intermediate Band Solar Cell Performance

Abstract [en]

This is the Master’s Thesis of Eirik Timo Bøe Vilpponen, and was written at the Department of Physics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The thesis is twofold, the first part being the comple- tion of a project undertaken during the fall of 2010. The project concerned the setup of a solar cell current-voltage characterization lab [4] at the same Dept. of Physics. The second part is an analysis of the current-voltage characteristics of NTNU-made quantum-dot intermediate band solar cells. A strong focus is put on exploring the possibility of utilizing the Two-Diode Model as a means of analysis. The two-diode model has been found to have a good potential for this use, but that it requires a specially made curve fitting computer program to fulfill this potential.
