Recombination at textured silicon surfaces passivated with silicon dioxide

McIntosh, Keith R.; Johnson, Luke P.


The surfaces of solar cells are often textured to increase their capacity to absorb light. This optical benefit is partially offset, however, by an increase in carrier recombination at or near the textured surface. A review of past work shows that the additional recombination invoked by a textured surface varies greatly from one experiment to another. For example, in the most commonly investigated structure—pyramidal textured silicon diffused with phosphorus and passivated with a hydrogenated...[Show more]
