Solcore was born as a modular set of tools, written (almost) entirely in Python 3, to address some of the task we had to solve more. With time, however, it has evolved as a complete semiconductor solver able of modelling the optical and electrical properties of a wide range of solar cells, from quantum well devices to multi-junction solar cells.

Please, visit Solcore's Documentation, the Tutorial for a step-by-step example of how to use Solcore to model a solar cell and also check the Examples folder for more specific information and examples of usage.


Solcore is the result of many years of developement by many people, trying to put together in a consistent way the tools that the Quantum Photovoltaics Group at Imperial College London needs for its research in solar cells and photovoltaics.
