Misconceptions and Misnomers in Solar Cells
Some of the terms that are currently used in solar cell technology, such as 'emitter' and 'back surface field,' perpetuate old misconceptions about the role of the highly doped n + and p+ regions commonly implemented near their front and back surfaces. This paper reviews the physics of the p + back surface region of silicon solar cells and concludes that, whereas electric fields are important to describe equilibrium conditions, the main force behind carrier transport under illumination is the...[Show more]
