Encapsulant characterization and doped passivated contacts for use in a luminescent solar concentrator
We report progress towards encapsulant characterization and the fabrication of passivated interdigitated back contact silicon solar cells using spin-on dopants for use in a luminescent solar concentrator. For the luminescent solar concentrator to be successful, the encapsulants used to assemble the final device must not contribute to optical losses and the tandem cell must exhibit excellent passivation and low contact resistivity values. The index of refraction of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is calculated to be 1.405-1.415 for 600-800 nm and 1.475-1.505 is calculated for ethylene vinyl acetate ...
