Analysis of Intermediate Band Solar Cell Performance
This is the Masters 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  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.
