Electronically stimulated degradation of silicon solar cells

Schmidt, Jan; Bothe, Karsten; MacDonald, Daniel; Adey, J; Jones, R; Palmer, D W


Carrier lifetime degradation in crystalline silicon solar cells under illumination with white light is a frequently observed phenomenon. Two main causes of such degradation effects have been identified in the past, both of them being electronically driven and both related to the most common acceptor element, boron, in silicon: (i) the dissociation of iron-boron pairs and (ii) the formation of recombination-active boron-oxygen complexes. While the first mechanism is particularly relevant in...[Show more]
