ABSTRACT
The effect of light illumination on the photovoltaic performances of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) n+-p-p+ solar cells has been investigated. The degradation increases as the doping concentration of p-type a-Si:H increases, and it decreases with increasing the substrate (or annealing) temperature. These results indicate that the light-induced degradation increases with the microvoid density in the material. The increase of conversion efficiency has been observed for a-Si:H n+-p-p+ cells after light exposure, and this is due to the increase of doping efficiency for p-type a-Si:H during light illumination.
