Addressing optical, recombination and resistive losses in crystalline silicon solar cells
The performance of any photovoltaic device is determined by its ability to mitigate optical, recombination, and resistive energy losses. This thesis investigates new materials and nascent technologies to address these energy loss mechanisms in crystalline silicon solar cells. Optical losses, specifically the suppression of energy losses resulting from front surface reflection, are first analysed. The use of reactive ion etched black silicon texturing, a...[Show more]
