  • Publication number: 20120097246
    Abstract: A solar cell includes a crystalline semiconductor substrate; a first crystalline semiconductor layer; an amorphous semiconductor layer; a first metal electrode layer and a second metal electrode layer. The crystalline semiconductor substrate has a first surface and a second surface, and the crystalline semiconductor substrate has a first doped type. The first crystalline semiconductor layer is disposed on the first surface of the crystalline semiconductor substrate, where the first crystalline semiconductor layer has a second doped type contrary to the first doped type. The amorphous semiconductor layer is disposed on the first crystalline semiconductor layer, and the amorphous semiconductor layer has the second doped type. The first metal electrode layer is disposed on the amorphous semiconductor layer. The second metal electrode layer is disposed on the second surface of the crystalline semiconductor substrate.

  • Publication number: 20120024366
    Abstract: A thin film solar cell structure and the fabricating method thereof are disclosed. A passivation layer is embedded into the thin film solar cell structure to be in contact with an absorbing layer. The interface trap density of the absorbing layer is reduced by the surface electric field of the passivation layer. The invention helps improve the power conversion efficiency and protect the absorbing layer.

  • Patent number: 7579668
    Abstract: A method for photo-detecting and an apparatus for the same are provided. The apparatus for photo-detecting includes a first P-N diode and a second P-N diode. The first P-N diode, has a first P-N junction which has a first thickness, by which a first electrical signal is generated when irradiated by light, and the second P-N diode has a second P-N junction which has a second thickness, by which a second electrical signal is generated when irradiated by light. The second thickness is larger than the first thickness and an operation of the first electrical signal and the second electrical signal is proceeded for obtaining a third electrical signal.
