%X PC-1D is a quasi-one-dimensional finite-element program for modeling semiconductor devices on personal computers. The program offers solar cell researchers a convenient user interface with the ability to address complex issues associated with heavy doping, high-level injection, nonplanar structures, and transients. The physical and numerical models used in PC-1D Version 2 that make it possible to approximate the multidimensional effects found in textured crystalline silicon solar cells, including the effects of increased front-surface recombination, oblique photon path angles, and light trapping, are presented. As an example of how the model can be applied, PC-1D is used to investigate the interpretation of spectral quantum efficiency data as a tool for diagnosing the internal performance of textured silicon solar cells

%T Nondestructive determination of thickness and refractive index of transparent films
%A W. A. Pliskin

%X A simple nondestructive method of measuring the refractive index and thickness of transparent films on reflective substrates has been developed. The technique involves the use of a microscope equipped with a monochromatic filter on the objective and a stage that can be rotated so that the reflected light is observed at various angles. The film thickness, d, is given by d = {[ΔNλ]/[2µ(cos} r2, - cos r1)], where λ is the wavelength of the filtered light, µ is the refractive index, and {ΔN} is the number of fringes observed between the angles of refraction r2, and r1.
