This is the Master s Thesis of Eirik Timo Bøe Vilpponen, and was writtenat the Department of Physics at the Norwegian University of Science andTechnology (NTNU). The thesis is twofold, the first part being the comple-tion of a project undertaken during the fall of 2010. The project concernedthe setup of a solar cell current-voltage characterization lab  at the sameDept. of Physics.The second part is an analysis of the current-voltage characteristics ofNTNU-made quantum-dot intermediate band solar cells. A strong focus isput on exploring the possibility of utilizing the Two-Diode Model as a meansof analysis. The two-diode model has been found to have a good potential forthis use, but that it requires a specially made curve fitting computer programto fulfill this potential.
