SCAPS-1D is a simulation programme for thin film solar cells developed at ELIS, University of Gent.

SCAPS (a Solar Cell Capacitance Simulator) is a one dimensional solar cell simulation programme developed at the Department of Electronics and Information Systems (ELIS) of the University of Gent, Belgium.

Several researchers have contributed to it's development:
Alex Niemegeers, Marc Burgelman, Koen Decock, Stefaan Degrave, Johan Verschraegen.

The was originally programme is developed for cell structures of the CuInSe2 and the CdTe family. Recent developments make the programme now also applicable to crystalline solar cells (Si and GaAs family) and amorphous cells (a-Si and micromorphous Si).
