Techniques to permit in-line characterization during various stages of solar cell research, development, and manufacturing provide a convenient means for optimizing yield, cost, and efficiency. Photoluminescence measurements are widely used for material characterization. This paper examines photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy (PLE) in which the steady-state photoluminescence is monitored as a function of the wavelength of the incident illumination. The use of PLE for in-line optical… CONTINUE READING
