A theoretical treatment is given of the mechanisms that might be responsible for reported improvements in solar cell characteristics of, in particular, TiO yCuInS based nanostructured ETA-solar cells. Especially, the possible benefits of the insertion 2 2 of an intermediate tunnel barrier (Al O , MgO) or buffer layer (CdS) are investigated. Three mechanisms(More)
In this paper, two methods are compared to model the I–V curves of nanostructured solar cells. These cells consist of an interpenetrating network of an n-type transparent semiconductor oxide (e.g. TiO2) and a p-type semiconductor absorber (e.g. CdTe, CuInS2), deposited on TCO covered glass. The methods are also applicable when a dye and an electrolyte(More)
Three-dimensional solid state solar cells, or 3D-cells, are based on nanostructured n-type TiO2 electrodes as known from dye-sensitized solar cells, and completed with a p-type solid state semiconductor absorber CuInS2 which is absorber and hole conductor in one. To study the electron transport in this specific type of nanostructured solar cells, they are(More)
Eta-solar cells were fabricated and analysed, these are thin film solar cells with an extremely thin absorber (here p-type CdTe) and a nanoor microstructured n-type TiO2 layer. The illuminated I-V curves are S-shaped. Quantum efficiency curves were measured under forward and reverse voltage bias, with and without light bias, and with varying front and back(More)
