11th Workshop on Crystalline Silicon Solar Cell Materials and Processes:; Extended Abstracts and Papers, 19-22 August 2001, Estes Park, Colorado

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The 11th Workshop will provide a forum for an informal exchange of technical and scientific information between international researchers in the photovoltaic and non-photovoltaic fields. Discussions will include the various aspects of impurities and defects in silicon ? their properties, the dynamics during device processing, and their application for developing low-cost processes formanufacturing high-efficiency silicon solar cells. Sessions and panel discussions will review impurities and defects in crystalline-silicon PV, advanced cell structures, new processes and process characterization techniques, and future manufacturing demands. ; The workshop will emphasize some of the promising new technologies in Si solar cell fabrication that can lower PV energy costs and meetthe throughput demands of the future. The three-day workshop will consist of presentations by invited speakers, followed by discussion sessions. Topics to be discussed are: Si Mechanical properties & Wafer Handling, Advanced Topics in PV Fundamentals, Gettering & Passivation, Impurities & Defects, Advanced Emitters, Crystalline Silicon Growth, and Solar Cell Processing. The workshop will alsoinclude presentations by NREL subcontractors who will review the highlights of their research during the current subcontract period. In addition, there will be two poster sessions presenting the latest research and development results. Some presentations will address recent technologies in the microelectronics field that may have a direct bearing on PV.
