Homework Statement


I have to find the value of the Fill Factor of the silicon photocell.
I graph for current, voltage and power.

I got this as a value 1.6x10-2

Is this the correct answer ?
I just need the real value so I can compare it with my results ..

Homework Equations



Pmax/Po

The Attempt at a Solution



Pmax/Po = (9.5x〖10〗^3µW)/(5.7x〖10〗^5µW) = 1.6x10-2



I have to submit the lab report tomorrow .. Please help me =[

The fill factor is "ratio of photodetector area to total area of the circuitry".
You have given no information on these areas, so no answer can be computed.

Umm ... I followed what the lab manual told me ...

" Calculate the fill factor, defined as the ratio Pmax/Po. Find the position of the point where the power is maximum on the i-V characteristic and draw a line to it from the origin. This is called a load line. "
