In this paper we describe the optical admittance method [1, 2] and discuss its use as a design tool to improve the conversion efficiency and the stability of typical single and double junction a-Si:H solar cells of the type: glass/TCO/pin/TCO/metal, and glass/TCO/pin/pin/metal. The use of silver, aluminium and combined TCO/metal rear contacts is also analysed.
