Welcome to the sheet resistance calculator

This calculator determines the sheet resistance of an arbitrarily doped semiconductor at equilibrium.

The calculator simulates a four-point probe measurement of a surface diffusion, such as an emitter, a back-surface field or a front-surface field of a photovoltaic (PV) solar cell. The user can either generate a dopant profile, or upload a profile from a SIMS, ECV, or spreading-resistance measurement. The calculator then determines the sheet resistance and the junction depth at any temperature.

The assumptions used in the calculations are described on the 'About' page.
