The fill factor (FF) is a measure of how far the I-V characteristics of an actual solar cell differ from those of an ideal cell.
Then, one may backward calculate the pressure and fill factor profile, as well as the temperature profile.

7) are not always satisfactory, leading to unacceptable high threshold error, especially for images with low fill factor.
Results showed that the bi-layer solar cells have higher fill factor rather than single layer cells with the same crystalline structure.
Microscale features allow Bruker's CMOS sensors to achieve a photodiode density, or fill factor, greater than 60%, allowing quantum efficiencies higher than typical CCDs.
The most notable difference between IFT and MIFT is that an adaptively changed fill factor f is introduced.
Furthermore, by improving the deposition process, cell morphology was significantly improved, leading to an increase in power output and in fill factor.
Other key features of the P4-8k include 100% fill factor, exposure control, 100x anti-blooming, and precise sensor alignment, which simplify multiple camera calibration at the system level.
