Abstract

Towards the goal of designing, building and optimizing an operational hot carrier solar cell, components of a hot carrier solar cell numerical device model have been developed and used to investigate the operation of the device. A coupled electron phonon energy balance model and an energy selective contact transport model have been written. An investigation using the energy selective contact transport model compared the performance of differing extraction barrier structures. A second investigation coupled the current calculating portion of the energy selective contact transport model to the electron phonon energy balance model to study the operation of these codependent device subsystems. In this paper, the construction of the energy selective contact transport model, and results from the two aforementioned investigations are given.
