By Daniel Abou-Ras, Thomas Kirchartz, Uwe Rau

The booklet makes a speciality of complex characterization tools for thin-film sun cells that experience confirmed their relevance either for educational and company photovoltaic study and improvement. After an advent to thin-film photovoltaics, hugely skilled specialists record on machine and fabrics characterization tools reminiscent of electroluminescence research, capacitance spectroscopy, and numerous microscopy tools. within the ultimate a part of the publication simulation options are awarded that are used for ab-initio calculations of suitable semiconductors and for equipment simulations in 1D, second and 3D.

Building on a confirmed suggestion, this new version additionally covers thermography, temporary optoelectronic equipment, and absorption and photocurrent spectroscopy.

Example text

Therefore, the present handbook is not thought as a textbook on established standard (canonical) methods. Rather, we focus on emerging, specialized methods that are relatively new in the field but have a given relevance. This is why the title of the book addresses “advanced” techniques. However, new methods also need to be judged by their implication for photovoltaic devices. For this reason, an introductory chapter (Chapter 1) will describe the basic physics of thin-film solar cells and modules and also guide to the specific advantages that are provided by the individual methods.
