HighEfficiency Silicon Solar Cells: Designs and Technologies



The course addresses the surface physics and chemistry of crystalline silicon including the critical phenomenon of surface passivation. It covers in depth the recombination mechanisms of charge carriers in crystalline silicon. A study of the different passivation approaches to the surface and their impact on the performance of solar cell technologies such as PERC, PERL and HIT, newer architectures will be explored.
