Brief description Photovoltaic (PV) solar cells are too expensive to become a viable solution for the challenges facing humanity. Increasing solar cell efficiency can reduce the cost of PV-generated power. Improved efficiency requires the ability to identify and quantify loss mechanisms, many of which are recombination related. Thus, innovative analysis methods need to be developed to facilitate improved understanding and identification of various loss mechanisms. The project aims to investigate recombination processes that deteriorate solar cells performance, using a novel measurement system in combination with advanced simulation tools. The project aims to assist with development of advanced processes to improve device performance.
