Paper Abstract

Charge carrier diffusion modeling, (CCDM), has been developed extensively during the past few years as a tool for performance evaluation of photovoltaic focal plane arrays. Some performance parameters which have been successfully predicted using CCDM include: line spread function and MTF; quantum efficiency; absolute responsivity; relative spectral response; junction effective optical width; and crosstalk. CCDM has also been used as an aid in evaluating related focal plane engineering topics, such as noise equivalent irradiance, production yield of acceptable array chips, array response to test set conditions, optimization of detector geometry, performance tradeoff analysis, and identification of performance degradation sources.
