We have developed in-house semiconductor solvers to simulated solar cells under Matlab environment.

Figure 1. summarizes the abilities of these solvers (single junction, multi-junction, 1D, pseudo-3D, custom material library...)

More information is given in [1-4]. Read more about the 1D solver, click here.
