Abstract

A method of fabricating a semiconductor junction is disclosed. The method includes forming a quaternary heterovalent compound semiconductor alloy epilayer, determining a doping characteristic of the epilayer, and forming a secondary layer on the epilayer to create a semiconductor junction, the secondary layer being doped in response to the determined doping characteristic of the epilayer. Solar cell and light emitting diode designs are also disclosed.

Keywords
