Silvaco’s device simulator Atlas, makes it possible to understand physical phenomena inside a device and make reliable predictions about the behaviour of new device structures, and can analyse hysteresis phenomena in perovskite solar cells.
“Silvaco’s device simulator Atlas will be useful in analyzing hysteresis phenomena resulting from TiO2 interface capacitance. We expect a further acceleration of perovskite solar cell research due to such analyses,” noted Professor Satoshi Uchida of the Environment and Energy Sciences Program at the Komaba Organization for Educational Excellence.
