Solar Cells Based on Quantum Dots: Multiple Exciton by Luque A., Marti A., Nozik A.J.

By Luque A., Marti A., Nozik A.J.

Semiconductor quantum dots can be used in so - known as 3rd - iteration sun cellsthat have the capability to significantly bring up the photon conversion potency through twoeffects: (1) the creation of mul tiple excitons from a unmarried photon of enough energyand (2) the formation of intermediate bands within the bandgap that use sub - bandgapphotons to shape separable electron-hole pairs. this can be attainable simply because quantization ofenergy degrees in quantum dots produces the subsequent results: more advantageous Auger proc -esses and Coulomb coupling among cost vendors; removal of the requirement toconserve crystal momentum; slowed scorching electron-hole pair (exciton) cooling; multipleexciton iteration; and forma tion of minibands (delocalized digital states) in quantumdot arrays. For exciton multi plication, very excessive quantum yields of 300-700% for excitonformation in PbSe, PbS, PbTe, and CdSe quantum dots were stated at photonenergies approximately 4-8 instances the HOMO-LUMO transition power (quantum dot bandgap),respectively, indi cating the formation of 3-7 excitons/photon, based upon the photonenergy. For intermediate - band sun cells, quantum dots are used to create the intermediatebands from the con fined electron states within the conduction band. through theintermediate band, it truly is attainable to take in less than - bandgap strength photons. This ispredicted to supply sun cells with more advantageous photocurrent with no voltage degradation.
