چکیده:

In amorphous thin film p–i–n solar cell, a thick absorber layer (i-layer) can absorb more light to generate electron and hole (carriers); however, a thicker i-layer degrades the drift electric field for carrier transport. On the other hand, a thin i-layer cannot absorb enough light. Thickness of i-layer is a key parameter that can limit the performance ofamorphous thin film solar cells. Introducing Ge atoms to the Si lattice in Si-based solar cells is an effective approach in improving their characteristics. Especially, current density of the cell can be enhanced without deteriorating its open circuit voltage, due to the modulation of material band-gap and the formation of a hetero-structure. This work present a numerical evaluation of single junction solar cell based on theoptimization of the Ge content in the film, thickness of i-layer, p-layer and doping concentration of p-layer in a (p-layer a- Si:H/i-layer a-SiGe:H/n-layer a-Si:H) single junction thin film solar cell for use in multijunction thin film solar cells and maximum efficiency of 18.4% is obtained
