Comparison of the open-circuit voltage (external voltage Voc,ext) determined by Suns-Voc measurements with the implied voltage Voc,impl determined by transient photoconductance decay lifetime measurements can yield a quick and easy analysis of silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cells, especially in regard to finding the optimum doping concentration of the emitter layer [or back surface field (BSF)]. A sufficiently high doping concentration of the emitter and BSF is mandatory to extract the internal Fermi-level splitting and thus the internal voltage, at the solar cell contacts. However increasing the concentration of doping gases during the deposition of doped amorphous silicon layers results in a reduction of the interface passivation quality and Voc,impl. The best trade off is realized when the ratio of Voc,ext to Voc,impl (external/internal Voc-ratio ζ) reaches a saturation value near 1 upon increasing the doping concentration. AFORS-HET (Automat FOR Simulation of HETerostructures) simulations resulted in the conclusion that the characteristics of the external/internal Voc-ratio are mainly determined by the active doping concentration (doping minus defect concentration).
