Texturing industrial multicrystalline silicon solar cells

MacDonald, Daniel; Cuevas, Andres; Kerr, Mark; Samundsett, Christian; Ruby, D; Winderbaum, Saul; Leo, A

Description

Three potential techniques for texturing commercial multicrystalline silicon solar cells are compared on the basis of reflectance measurements. Wet acidic texturing, which would be the least costly to implement, produces a modest improvement in reflection before antireflection coating and encapsulation, whereas maskless reactive-ion etching texturing, and especially masked reactive-ion etched 'pyramids', generate a larger gain in absorption. After antireflection coating and encapsulation...[Show more]
