Amorphous silicon-germanium solar cells with graded germanium content profile in the intrinsic layers are studied in this paper. With proper band gap profile along the film growth direction, single junction solar cell with initial efficiency of 9.07% and a-Si:H/a-SiGe:H tandem cells of 12.03% efficiency.
