Irreversible Light-Induced Degradation in amorphous Silicon Solar Cells

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Irreversible light-induced degradation has been observed in amorphous silicon p-i-n solar cells exposed to intense illumination at normal operating temperatures. In addition, subjecting the cells to a strong reverse bias while exposed to intense illumination caused increases in both the open-circuit voltage and the fill factor. Both effects appear to be associated with the motion of hydrogen inthe vicinity of the p/i interface.
