Abstract
This project was conducted during the spring of 2013 at the IMEP-LAHC laboratory in Grenoble, as
part of their research into the electrical and optical properties of ZnO/CdTe-based radial nanowire
array solar cells. Simulations with different transport mechanisms and physical properties of the
semiconductors were made and compared to experimentally acquired data. It was confirmed that
the nanowire array setup is advantageous compared to a conventional planar structure, and it was
also found that quantum mechanical tunneling of electrons through crystal defects or impurities in
the core/shell interface could be the main dark current transport mechanism.
