INES is actually developping new fabrication technologies for n-type silicon solar cells. Working on simulation of photovoltaic solar cells enables the speed-up of the developement of new technologies: physical interpretation of characterisation results, support to device design, optimisation of processing steps and evaluation of original designs.
This subject open for post-doc position is focused on the study of semi-empirical models for materials and process steps for n-type solar cells. These basic road-blocks will be assembled in a complete model by using a multi-scale simulation tool. In the end, this global model will allow optimising of the p-type emitter geometrical structure, the efficiency of carrier collection on the back side or the geometry of metallisation for electrical contacts.
