Texturing industrial multicrystalline silicon solar cells

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


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]
