High-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells: status and perspectives

Battaglia, Corsin; Cuevas, Andres; De Wolf, Stefaan


With a global market share of about 90%, crystalline silicon is by far the most important photovoltaic technology today. This article reviews the dynamic field of crystalline silicon photovoltaics from a device-engineering perspective. First, it discusses key factors responsible for the success of the classic dopant-diffused silicon homojunction solar cell. Next it analyzes two archetypal high-efficiency device architectures – the interdigitated back-contact silicon cell and the silicon...[Show more]
