Abstract

We applied a pump-probe laser terahertz emission microscope to investigate dynamic response of photoexited carriers in a solar cell. We could clearly observe the change of terahertz radiation at the grain boundary in the polycrystalline silicon solar cell using the pump-probe methods , which could not be obtained by simple terahertz emission imaging.
