Title
(EN) SOLAR CELL ARRANGEMENTS
(FR) AGENCEMENTS DE PILES SOLAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
A solar cell arrangement includes a top cell (2), a tunnel diode (8) and a bottom cell (5) and a monolithically integrated protection diode (11). The protection diode (11) is formed by removing parts of the top cell (5) and tunnel diode (8) in a region.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un agencement de piles solaires comprenant une pile supérieure (2), une diode tunnel (8) et une pile inférieure (5) ainsi qu'une diode (11) de protection monolithique. La diode (11) de protection est formée dans une région par le retrait de parties de la pile supérieure (5) et de la diode tunnel (8).
