SLALOM: Open-Source, Portable and Easy-to-use Solar Cell Optimizer. Application to the Design of InGaN and CZTS Solar Cells.

Abstract : The development of new thin films solar cells is highly accelerated by using rigorous optimization approach. A large set of parameters is involved in the solar cell operation: active layer thickness, composition, bandgap, doping, contacts, etc. The study of the solar cell performances with respect to these linked parameters is necessary to better understand the underlying physics and to optimize the final device. We propose in this poster presentation (*) a new open-source solar cell optimizer: SLALOM for SoLAr ceLl multivariate OptiMizer. SLALOM implements, for the first time for solar cells, a rigorous multivariate approach while the standard optimization work used to use the one-by-one parameter procedure. SLALOM is implemented to be easily extended to any simulator, the core code itself does not depend on any particular engine. It can be adapted for any solar cell structure, runs locally or remotely on a calculation server, using the SSH protocol and includes a graphical user interface to real-time monitor the optimization. Two study cases, InGaN and CZTS solar cells, are presented to show the SLALOM ability to become a useful tool for the development of novel solar cells.
