The optimum material parameters capable of providing high efficiencies close to the detailed balance limit are determined for intermediate band solar cells using a diffusion model, including the overlap effect between absorption coefficients. It is obtained that to achieve high efficiencies, the effective density of state value, NCV, should be higher than 1017 cm−3 and the carrier mobility should be larger than 200 cm2/Vs, where the light concentration should not be higher than nearly 1000 sun.
