Variation of environmental conditions during light soaking of thin film silicon:hydrogen alloy (TFS) solar cells can have measurable effect on durability. Such sensitivity must be considered in optimizing processes for maximizing long-term performance. This paper will describe the effects of operating temperature, light intensity, operating bias, and duration of light soaking on the stability of TFS p-i-n solar cells.
