Photoluminescence quenching and hot carrier transfer in nanocrystalline silicon

Levi Miller, Jeremy Fields, Reuben Collins & Craig Taylor
The maximum efficiency of silicon photovoltaic cell is not 31% but 74%. Collecting hot carriers before they thermalize is a means to achieve this. In this regard, amorphous semiconductors are potentially useful materials. Nanocrystalline silicon (nc-Si:H) is unique in that carriers of wide energy distribution generated in amorphous regions may be in range of crystalline regions. These carriers can benefit from higher mobility and a lesser probability of thermalization. The motivation behind this project is...
