Organic 2D Solar Cell Photonic Crystal in CHARGE
I am looking at the "Organic Solar Cell with PC Structure" example in .fsp, and I am trying to figure out how to simulate the solar cell performance in CHARGE, similar to the way that the planar silicon solar cell does. I know I can start by copying over the optical generation calculation script from the planar silicon solar cell example, but I would like some advice on the following issues:
- How should I go about adapting the script to calculate the solar generation in multiple layers? I imagine the bandgaps in the other layers are low enough that there would be significant generation of carriers, but different bandgaps would complicate the analysis relative to the planar silicon example on your site.
- What are some things I should keep in mind if I want to create and analyze this structure in CHARGE so that I can figure out the performance of this solar cell structure? I'm not sure how I would go about creating this multi-level structure with this photonic crystal, and what I might have to consider when trying to electrically simulate this photonic crystal structure.
