Polyimide for silicon solar cells with double-sided textured pyramids

Zin, Ngwe Soe; McIntosh, Keith; Bakhshi, Sara; Vázquez-Guardado, Abraham; Kho, Teng; Fong, Kean; Stocks, Matthew; Franklin, Evan; Blakers, Andrew


Silicon solar cells incorporating double-sided pyramidal texture are capable of superior light trapping over cells with front-side only texture. However, increased surface area, roughness and exposed <111> crystal planes of textured surfaces not only causes increased recombination, but also makes cells susceptible to shunting through pinholes in the dielectric at the sharp peaks and valleys of the textured pyramids. A polyimide film as an insulating interlayer film is investigated to circumvent...[Show more]
