Paper Abstract

A theoretical evaluation of the photoelectric properties of a metal-insulator-semiconductor structure with induced inversion layer (MIS/IL) like the Al/tunnel SiOx/p-Si structure by using of an external bias. The MIS/IL structure with a special inversion grid is considered. A back bias is applied between substrate and metal inversion grid. It investigate the effects of influence of external bias on the parameters of the MIS/IL structure and solar cells (SC) on said base. The functional dependence of the MIS/IL structure parameters and the electrical characteristics of MIS/IL photoelectric transmitters depends on back bias. Numerical results show that the external back bias to increase the photoconversion efficiency of SC on the MIS/IL base. Solar module is possible to creation. The auxiliary voltage from additional SC is applied to the inversion grid of several main SCs.
