- The research has sought the following: to identify and characterize the basic photovoltaic mechanisms that govern the conversion efficiency of polycrystalline thin-film solar cells; to experimentally determine the electronic parameters related to these photovoltaic mechanisms; and to relate these mechanisms and parameters to the conversion efficiency through theoretical physical models developed for engineering design. These objectives are all intimately related. The emphasis of the work has been on polysilicon, although it is building a foundation of understanding useful for similar research in the future on other thin-film materials. Progress is reported.
