Investigation of the Solar Cells with Films of Porous Silicon and β-Diketonates


The experimental results of a research of the solar cells parameters covered with films InxSnyOz, and solar cells covered with films, obtained by dispersion of alcoholic solutions of three-chloride Indium acetyl acetonate of aluminum are represented. The spectral dependencies of reflection factor and open circuit voltage of the film-covered solar cells are obtained. The conditions of deriving and properties of porous silicon and parameters of the solar cells with films of porous silicon and covers, forming a potential barrier, are investigated. It is shown that for optimum parameters of films deriving the solar cells with efficiency 15.8% is possible.
