Abstract

The feasibility of implementing the intermediate-band (IB) concept into a relevant thin-film technology has been assessed. Compounds belonging to the group of I-III-VI2 chalcopyrites, currently used as absorbers in the leading thin-film technology, appear as promising candidates for the realization of IB-devices. In this paper we first analyze the expected performance of such a thin-film intermediate band solar cell (TF-IBSC) by considering different levels of idealization. In the second part of the paper some issues relevant for the practical realization of IBs in chalcopyrites are discussed and impurities acting as potential IB-precursors in the chalcopyrite sulfide host identified.
