Thin (<70 micron) single crystal silicon solar cells have been manufactured through the use of a novel process involving selective etching. Narrow grooves are micromachined through the wafer using a standard micromachining technique with cells manufactured on the resulting silicon strips. These bifacial cells have a much greater surface area than the original wafer, leading to dramatic decreases in processing effort and silicon usage. Individual cells fabricated using the new process have...[Show more]
