Stability of Single and Tandem Junction a-Si:H Solar Cells Grown Using the ECR Process

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

We report on the fabrication and stability tests of single junction a-Si:H, and tandem junction a-Si:H/a-Si:H solar cells using the ECR process under high hydrogen dilution (H-ECR process). We show that devices with high fill factors can be made using the H-ECR process. We also report on the stability studies of the solar cells under 1 and 2-sun illumination conditions. The solar cells show verylittle degradation even after 500 hours of illumination under 2 x sunlight illumination.
