Silicon Solar Cells with Front Hetero-Contact and Aluminum Alloy Back Junction: Preprint

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

We prototype an alternative n-type monocrystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cell structure that utilizes an n/i-type hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) front hetero-contact and a back p-n junction formed by alloying aluminum (Al) with the n-type Si wafer.
