Studies of silicon oxide ageing and titanium oxide passivation of silicon for use in solar cells

Thomson, Andrew Francis


In this thesis the dielectrics silicon oxide (SiO{u2082}) and titanium oxide (TiO{u2082}) are investigated as to their ability to passivate surfaces of silicon (Si) solar cells. Ageing is identified as a degradation mechanism that affects all oxide-passivated surfaces, which in some cases would have a drastic impact on the performance of a solar cell. Also, the addition of hydrogen to TiO{u2082} is explored to improve the passivation of TiO{u2082}/SiO{u2082}-Si anti-reflection stacks....[Show more]
