Paper Abstract

The technology, devices, photo-electrical characteristics of silicon solar cells for low power applications are discussed. The solar cells are based on diode structures fabricated on phosphorous- or borom-doped silicon substrates with resistivity 4.5...10 Ohm sm. A single cell 0.9 X 0.43 mm2 provides the open-circuit voltage 0.5 V and short-circuit current 20 mA with efficiency 12...15%. The cells are collected in the submodules to supply the required output power or voltage for ICs, sensors and systems for electronic control and monitoring.
