Calculating Jsc of solar cell for unpolarized source



I know how to calculate the transmission and electric fields for an unpolarized light. However, I wish to calculate the short circuit current density generated in a solar cell of my design for an unpolarized light source. I want to calculate this using both FDTD Solutions and CHARGE (DEVICE). How do i achieve this?


The best starting point is our dedicated page on the knowledge base: It includes information about the methodology as well as several examples of optical and electrical simulations.

Regarding unpolarized light, you will need to run 2 simulations with orthogonally polarized sources and then incoherently sum the results as shown at
