Under ultra-high solar concentration, an anomalous open-circuit voltage drop-out has been observed experimentally, but not understood theoretically. This anomaly is often attributed to various thermal effects but is also observed in flash testing, where thermal effects do not have time to accumulate. As the optically generated carrier density increases past the equilibrium carrier density, open-ci... read more
