This example shows how to setup a detailed skin including a transport layer to enabled the detailed MIS model in Quokka3. The detailed MIS model resolves band-bending in the c-Si wafer and direct tunneling through an insulator.

The investigated cell is the former 25.7% record cell of Fraunhofer ISE: A. Richter et al., n-Type Si solar cells with passivating electron contact: Identifying sources for efficiency limitations by wafer thickness and resistivity variation, SOLMAT 2017

The downloaded archive contains Quokka3 settingsfiles for all of the input parameter sets presented in (Fell et al. 2015, JPV), namely a conventional, PERC, n-PASHA, HJT, ANU-IBC and UNSW-PERL cell. For each cell type a settingsfile exists where the the skins are defined by their lumped properties.

For the PERC cell and additional settingsfile is included which defines a much more complete and detailed model of the same cell. It comprises:
