Description of Head Picture
EBIC (Electron Beam Induced Current) image of a Cadmium Telluride (p-CdTe) / Cadmium Sulfide (n-CdS) solar cell. An irradiating electron beam into a CdTe absorber creates electron-hole pairs within a corresponding interaction volume. The generated minority carriers that are diffused to the p-n junction are collected, producing a current. The “pebbles” in this current map represent CdTe grains (a few 100 nm to a few 1 μm in size). The carrier collection efficiency is the highest (bright color) when electron beam is positioned near grain boundaries. [Artistic effects were applied.]
