The process of making Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) solar cell is implemented by a novel simplified etch-back technique, while aiming for no compromise on high-efficiency potentials. Simplified etch-back creates localized heavy and light phosphorus and boron diffusions simultaneously. This process also leaves localised heavy diffusions to be approximately a micron higher than neighbouring light diffusion regions. In comparison to the IBC solar cells that ANU developed to date [1], key...[Show more]
