Sliver® modules - a crystalline silicon technology of the future

Blakers, Andrew; Weber, K. J; Everett, V; Deenapanray, S; Babaei, Jafar; Stocks, Matthew


A new technique has been devised for the manufacture of thin (<60µm) highly efficient single crystalline solar cells. Novel methods of encapsulating these Sliver® solar cells have also been devised. Narrow grooves are formed through a 1-2mm thick wafer. Device processing (diffusion, oxidation, deposition) is performed on the wafer, so that each of the narrow strips becomes a solar cell. The strips are then detached from the wafer and laid on their sides, which greatly increases the surface area...[Show more]
