Recent Advances in Synthetic Calibrations of Multi Junction Solar Cells and their Corresponding Component Cells
Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt Braunschweig, Bundesallee 100, 38114 Braunschweig, Germany
Precise calibrations of primary reference standards for Multi Junction Solar Cells are crucial for the exact characterization of photovoltaic devices for space applications. To complement the established but rarely performed atmospheric calibration campaigns via balloon flights a reliable laboratory based, synthetic, calibration method is desirable. Differential spectral responsivity measurements are an established calibration method for solar cells in terrestrial application. Here it is shown that such synthetic calibrations can also be performed with lowest measurement uncertainties on Component Cells but also on whole Multi Junction Solar cell devices.
