Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 165)


In this chapter, we will discuss the possible application ofInGaN:Mn layers for Intermediate Band Solar Cell devices. We will consider the reasons for choosing to study this promising system; why plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy is the method of choice to produce such structures; the specific problems associated with InGaN growth and the progress made so far in achieving this objective. We also discuss briefly other possible dopants for IBSCs based on InGaN.
