Description

It is well known that the overall performance of a solar cell is limited by the worst performing areas of the device. These areas are usually micro and nano-scale defects

It is well known that the overall performance of a solar cell is limited by the worst performing areas of the device. These areas are usually micro and nano-scale defects inhomogenously distributed throughout the material. Mitigating and/or engineering these effects is necessary to provide a path towards increasing the efficiency of state-of-the-art solar cells. The first big challenge is to identify the nature, origin and impact of such defects across length scales that span multiple orders of magnitude, and dimensions (time, temperature etc.).
