Abstract:

Existing theories are reviewed and their relevance to explaining photovoltage enhancement in practical Si and GaAs MIS cells is examined. The factors affecting other salient solar-cell properties (photocurrent), fill factor, conversion efficiency) are also considered and suggestions as to the parameters limiting present device performance are given
