Nowadays, the thin film solar cells of amorphous silicon have mostly been used because of their low cost. During these last decades, the performances of these cells have been greatly improved. In this work, we investigate the effect of the thickness of antireflective coating (ARC) on the characteristics of a solar cell based on a pin (PIN) structure. All these options are implemented in the one-dimensional numerical simulation program SCAPS-1D developed at the Department of Electronics and Information Systems (ELIS) of the University of Gent, Belgium.

Keywords: thin film, PIN structure, solar cells, amorphous silicon, SCAPS-1D
