We review recent results relating to the boron-oxygen defect in compensated crystalline silicon for solar cells. The experimental observations are not easily explained by the standard model for the boron-oxygen defect, which involves substitutional boron. In addition, the proposed presence of boron-phosphorus pairs as a possible explanation for these findings is inconsistent with numerous other results. A recently proposed new model for the defect, based on interstitial boron, appears to...[Show more]
