|Programming language: TCL, Matlab, Lumerical FDTD Solutions Version 8.7.3, TCAD Sentaurus Version j-2014.09.|
|Computer: A multi-core, high ram workstation is recommended for running Lumerical Solutions and TCAD Sentaurus. The scripts provided here were run on a HPZ820 workstation with 2 X Intel Xeon E5-2680 2.70Ghz processors and 128GB DDR3-1600 RAM.|
|Operating system: Linux.|
|Number of processors used: Matlab scripts can be parallel processed. The scripts have been tested on 16 CPUs (32 Threads).|
|RAM: For the TCL files, minimal RAM is needed. For the matlab script, it depends on the structure. The scripts have been tested using an upper limit of 128 GB.|
|Keywords: Photovoltaic, Lumerical, Sentaurus, FDTD.|
|Classification: 4, 6, 18.|
Nature of problem:
Create a tool flow that models complex fabrication techniques,as well as accurate and efficient optical and electrical simulations for photovoltaic simulations.
Code is provided to interface between Lumerical and Sentaurus using TCL and Matlab script.
This is an Open Access program
Depends on structure complexity and number of processors used.
