Porous Silicon Based Solar Cells
The primary aim of this communication is to introduce a novel approach of preparation of solar cell, viz. PS based solar cell, which is on the basis of the basic principle of the well established photovoltaic effect. We carefully investigate the current-voltage characteristics of the PS-based solar cell by virtue of performing the measurement of both current and voltage of PS-based solar cell under the condition of the sunlight irradiation and priori to sunlight irradiation in the purpose of observing clearly the photovoltaic effect possessed by the PS based solar cell. Judging by the results obtained in this paper, we can safely draw the conclusion that porous silicon is a good candidate material for the preparation of solar cell, that is to say that our study is giving high hope for the industrial production of high efficient PS-based thin film solar cells.
