The influence of minority carrier recombination in the depletion region of silicon solar cells on their current-voltage characteristics has been investigated. Starting with cells which exhibited a clear double-exponential dark characteristic of the formj = j_{01}[\exp (\frac{qV}{(A_{1}kT})-1] + j_{02}[\exp (\frac{qV}{A_{2}kT})-1] + \frac{V}{R_{sh}}with valuesA_{1} \approx 1,A_{2} \approx 2, and Rshlarge, depletion region recombination was studied by subjecting the cells to proton irradiation of… CONTINUE READING
