We have developed a technique to fabricate quantum dot (QD) solar cells with direct doping of Si into InAs QDs in GaNAs strain-compensating matrix in order to control the quasi-Fermi level of intermediate QD states. The Si atoms were evenly incorporated into QDs during the assembling stage of growth such that a uniform array of partially filled QDs has been obtained. Nonradiative recombination losses were also reduced by Si doping and a photocurrent increase due to two-step photon absorption was clearly measured at room temperature detected under filtered air-mass 1.5 solar spectrum.
