|Title||Two layers corrugated semiconductor solar cell|
|Title in Arabic||طبقتين أشباه الموصلات الخلايا الشمسية|
A new two-layer-waveguide solar cell is introduced. It consists of silicon monoxide (SiO) layer on top of Fe-InGaAsP film surrounded by Air cladding and transparent conducting oxides (TCO) substrate. Both TE and TM reflection and transmission powers have been extracted from the Hybrid Transfer Matrix Method. The average transmitted, reflected and absorbed power as function of the operating wavelength have been computed and plotted numerically for several physical parameters as the layers’ thicknesses, type of materials and the incidence angles. The simulations have been carried out by using the MAPLE software. The results show that changing the type of TCO layer does not affect the performance of the solar cell. Thus, for low moisture environment, AZO is better choice than ITO. However, we noticed that the thickness of each layer and the incidence angle have considerable effect on the performance of the solar cell. This work has shown excellent results for high transmission of the incident waves frequency bands. Hence, the studied structure would be promising to be utilized in the field of solar cells.
