Each junction is illuminated under standard test conditions. Given the photon fluxes below, calculate the short-circuit current density (in mA/cm2) of each (separate) junction (A, B and C):

ϕ=9.3∗1020m−2s−1 for 300nm<λ<650nm

ϕ=8.4∗1020m−2s−1 for 650nm<λ<850nm

ϕ=1.4∗1021m−2s−1 for 850nm<λ<1250nm

e) Jsc of Junction A:


f) Jsc of Junction B:


g) Jsc of Junction C:

h) The Voc of each junction in V can be roughly estimated by the equation

Voc=Egap(J)2q=Egap(eV)2
where q is the elementary charge, Egap(J) is the bandgap energy expressed in Joules, and Egap(eV) is the bandgap energy expressed in eV. Assume a fill factor of FF=0.75. What is then the efficiency (in %) of the triple junction solar cell?
