Overcoming the Efficiency-Limiting Mechanisms in Commercial Si Solar Cells

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

A brief review of performance-limiting processes in a commercial solar cell fabricated on low-cost substrate is given. Higher efficiencies require effective gettering of precipitated impurities present at the defect clusters, and improved cell and process designs. Overcoming these limitations is expected to lead to 18%-20% cell efficiencies.
