Abstract

High quasi-Fermi-level splitting in monocrystalline n-type CdTe/MgCdTe double-heterostructures can be effectively extracted using p-type a-Si:H contacts, achieving Voc over 1 V. We show high-efficiency monocrystalline CdTe with Voc around 1V, evidencing a built-in voltage between p-type a-Si:H and n-CdTe of 1.1 V using capacitance-voltage measurements.
