Title: Electro-Optical Characterization at NREL

Abstract

One of the core issues in all of the photovoltaics technologies is relating PV device performance to the methods and materials used to produce them. Due to the nature of PV devices, the electronic and optical properties of the materials are key to device performance. The relationship between materials growth and processing, the resulting electro-optical properties, and device performance can be extremely complex and difficult to determine without direct measurement of these properties. Accurate and timely measurement of the electro-optical properties as a function of device processing provides researchers and manufacturers with the knowledge they need to troubleshoot problems and develop the knowledge base necessary for reducing cost, maximizing efficiency, improving reliability, and enhancing manufacturability. The Electro-optical Characterization Team at NREL provides this support for all internal and external projects funded by the PV Program.
