Surface Passivation of Crystalline Silicon by Sputtered Aluminium Oxide

Tsu Tsung, Andrew Li


Efficient and inexpensive solar cells are necessary for photovoltaics to be widely adopted for mainstream electricity generation. For this to occur, the recombination losses of charge carriers (i.e. electrons or holes) must be minimised using a surface passivation technique suitable for manufacturing. In the literature, it has been shown that the aluminium oxide films are negatively charged dielectrics that provide excellent surface passivation of silicon solar cells. Meanwhile, sputtering has...[Show more]
