Webinar on Accurate Atomistic Simulations of Solar-cell Devices

Date: On-Demand
30 minutes (including a Q&A session)

Join us for a free on-demand webinar featuring a demonstration of the new framework in QuantumATK, Photocurrent Module, for accurate and efficient atomistic simulations of photocurrent and OCV (Open Circuit Voltage) in solar cell devices. Temperature effects have a significant impact on OCV and photocurrent, and electron-phonon scattering can be combined with the Photocurrent Module to take these effects into account.

Discover Accurate Simulations of Solar-cell Devices with QuantumATK

  • Learn how to set up photocurrent simulations and visualize results using the NanoLab GUI.
  • Discover how the new framework can be used together with other tools in the QuantumATK package, to further understand the behavior of devices with different properties under illumination.
  • Find out how the new framework can be useful in the search for new materials for solar cells and light emitting diodes (LEDs).

You are welcome to ask questions throughout the webinar or at the end during the Q&A session.

You can learn more about the Photocurrent Module in the tutorial on calculating photocurrent in a silicon p-n junction and in the paper "Efficient First-Principles Calculation of Phonon-Assisted Photocurrent in Large-Scale Solar-Cell Devices".
