Abstract

The unique properties of the diamond-like carbon (a:DLC), such as high mechanical hardness and abrasive resistance, optical transparency in the visible and IR spectral regions and high thermal conductivity, provide this material with advantages over other types of protecting materials for solar cells. Furthermore, the a:DLC films are inert to corrosive gases and other corrosive agents. Resistance to radiation damage of the a:DLC films deposited on solar cells is very important for space application. In the study we investigate the effect of electron damage on silicon solar cells coated with a:DLC films. We measure the IV characteristic and the spectral response and calculate the values of the screen parameters of the double exponential solar cell model (usually not investigated) as a function of electron fluence irradiation. In addition we obtain also the usual external parameters I-SC,V-OC, I-m, V-m, FF, and efficiency) of the solar cells. we investigate solar cells with and without anti-reflecting coating with a:DLC films which were exposed to electron radiation. The main findings show that the solar cells with a:DLC films of thickness up to 500 nm degrade similarly to regular silicon cells exposed to electron irradiation. The degradation of the spectral response of the solar cell is mainly in the range of longer wavelengthsand the irradiation affects the solar cell parameters (mainly the reverse saturation currents).
