Substrates for thin crystalline silicon solar cells

Blakers, Andrew


Choice of substrate for thin crystalline silicon solar cells requires a compromise between cost and quality. There are three generic substrate types, namely a transparent substrate (such as glass), an opaque substrate (such as a ceramic or metal) and low cost multicrystalline silicon. Glass has the advantage of eliminating absorption within the substrate. However, the larger effective diffusion length, the improved surface passivation and the increased process flexibility obtainable with an...[Show more]
