Paper Abstract

A review is presented of the performance of indium tin oxide (ITO)/InP solar cells fabricated by a variety of methods. The highest efficiency device has been made using DC magnetron sputter deposition of the ITO and an efficiency of 18.9% global has been achieved. Analysis of type conversion effects near the surface of the p-type InP substrates indicates that all devices appear to operate as n/i/p solar cells. Although the detailed performance of the devices fabricated by different methods appears to be different, it is shown that all can be explained within the framework of the n/i/p model. Hence, this is used to indicate directions for the further improvement in efficiency of this device.
