Document Number: 6731
SNARF for: Revision of SEMI PV69 - Test Method for Spectrum Response (SR) Measurement of Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) and Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell (DSSC) With Title Change To SEMI PV69 - Test Method for Spectrum Response (SR) Measurement of Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) and Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell (DSSC)and Perovskite Solar Cell(PSC)

Originating Global Technical Committee: Photovoltaic
Originating TC Chapter: Taiwan
Task Force (TF) in which work is to be carried out: Organic and Dye Sensitized Solar Cell and Perovskite solar cell Task Force
Note: If a new task force is needed, also submit a task force organization form (TFOF)

1. Rationale:
a. Describe the need or problem addressed by this activity.
(Indicate the customer, what benefits they will receive, and if possible, quantify the impact on the return on investment [ROI] if the Document is implemented.)
The advantages of dye-sensitized solar cells are low manufacturing cost, low pollution, thin, light and flexible, etc. The innovative application of DSSC devices shall change people's lifestyle such as to integrate with indoor charging for 3C consumer and mobile devices anywhere. Currently Standard Test Condition (STC, AM1.5G, 25 deg C, 1000 W/m2 ) is designed for traditional solar products (Si & TF),which is not suitable for DSSC product that only work for visible light spectrum (300 ~ 800 nm). Therefore, the extra mass data modification is required for OPV/DSSC/PSC test. Comparing traditional solar products, OPV/DSSC/PSC product is more sensitive with temperature due to non-linear characteristics, so uniform temperature control platform is necessary. Therefore, this activity shall develop a new performance test method to evaluate OPV/DSSC/PSC device’s spectrum response (SR). This activity shall also provide a OPV/DSSC/PSC guide line relative to R&D of material, QC of cell/module manufacturing process, and device/end-product qualification. The current SEMI PV69 measures the SR method for DSSC/OPV. PSC has the same capacitance effect 2 Feb 2020 as DSSC/OPV. In order to make the original method more clearly applicable to PSC. This activity shall modify and add the title and text to the PSC wording, and it has been clearly stated that this method is suitable for DSSC/OPV/PSC.


b. Estimate effect on industry.
2: Major effect on an industry sector - identify the relevant sector
Sector or Company Information:

c. Estimate technical difficulty of the activity.
II: Some Difficulty - Disagreements on known requirements exist but developing consensus is possible

2. Scope:
a: Describe the technical areas to be covered or addressed by this Document development activity. For Subordinate Standards, list common concepts or criteria that the Subordinate Standard inherits from the Primary Standard, as well as differences from the Primary Standard:
This activity shall develop a new performance test method to evaluate OPV/DSSC/PSC device’s spectrum response (SR). This activity shall also provide a OPV/DSSC/PSC guide line related to R&D of material, QC of cell/module manufacturing process, and device/end-product qualification. This new standard shall specify OPV/DSSC/PSC spectrum response (SR) test evaluation include items written as below: (1) Provide a guide line to correct OPV/DSSC/PSC data measured under STC. (2) Provide suitable statistic method to solve low response time issue for OPV/DSSC/PSC. (3) Provide a new isothermal platform standard for OPV/DSSC/PSC.

b: Expected result of activity
Major revision to an existing Standard or Safety Guideline
