The Solar Cell Utility™ provides an optical and electronic simulation solution for solar cell devices. The utility simplifies common tasks associated with solar cell design and aids in the rigorous computation of J-V curves, quantum efficiency spectra, and overall cell-efficiency. The basic version of the Solar Cell Utility uses a simple electronic model and operates with one or more RSoft optical simulation tools. If a rigorous electronic modeling solution is desired, LaserMOD can be used. The Solar Cell Utilty LaserMOD option provides a limited license of LaserMOD for this purpose.
 The Solar Cell Utility provides owners of some of RSoft's optical simulation tools the functionality described here. All simulation tools are licensed separately.
 Consult an RSoft representative to determine which combinations of products are currently supported.
