Modeling solar cells

Modeling solar cells

Polymer solar cells are laminated structures that convert photons into electron-hole pairs by dissociation. Current is then created by diffusion of the holes and electrons. We will study the propagation of light in solar cells and model how excitons generated by light dissociate into electron-hole pairs which are collected at the electrodes. Performance of solar cells will be simulated by solving differential equations.
