Paper Abstract

In this work, key properties of InxGa1-xN tandem solar cells (SCs) (single junction, double junctions and triple junctions) were simulated by employing AMPS-1D software, including I-V characteristic, efficiency, band structure, built-in electric field etc. We compared the results of our simulation with the results of other theoretical calculations published in the literature and analysed the causes of the differences among these results. We try to find some useful information related to the important parameters of InGaN SCs, such as the band gap configuration and thickness selection. This work may help the progress in the preparation of the InGaN-based high efficiency solar cells.
