Abstract

The doping concentration and the thickness of crystalline silicon solar cells strongly influence their performances. In this work we simulated a solar cell with ZnO/c-Si(n)/c-Si(p)/c-Si(p)/Ag structure. The optimization of thicknesses and doping concentrations of the emitter, absorber and the BSF layers were performed using the AFORS-HET simulation software.
