A heterojunction solar cell model which explicitly shows the competition among various channels of current flow in these structures is presented. The model gives a general set of criteria for the design and evaluation of p-n window/absorber heterojunction solar cells in terms of a set of dimensionless numbers F(D2), F(I), and F(D1). Other heterojunction models are compared to this very general formulation. Heterojunction solar cell structures are also discussed in the light of this model and the resulting design criteria.
