Two emerging trends in multicrystalline silicon cell texturing are plasma texturing, and metal catalyzed chemical etching. Both processes roughen silicon surfaces in order to increase light absorption. These processes are attractive as they are applicable to diamond-wire sawn wafers. This work investigates the optical properties of these surfaces, and other conventionally textured surfaces like isotropic acidic and random pyramid textures, are investigated for cells in air and after...[Show more]
