Abstract

The AC parameters of silicon (BSR and BSFR) solar cells and GaAs/Ge solar cell have been measured using impedance spectroscopy. Each cell capacitance, dynamic resistance and series resistance were measured and compared. GaAs/Ge solar cell has shown only the transition capacitance throughout its operating range while silicon (BSR and BSFR) solar cells exhibited both transition and diffusion capacitance. The theoretical and experimental values of dynamic resistance were compared and found in good agreement while the diode factor in silicon solar cells varies from 2 to 1, where as in GaAs/Ge solar cell it varies from 4 to 2 to 1.
