Reassessment of the Limiting Efficiency for Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells
Recently, several parameters relevant for modeling crystalline silicon solar cells were improved or revised, e.g., the international standard solar spectrum or properties of silicon such as the
New concepts for silicon solar cells
Numerical simulation of tunnel diodes and multi-junction solar cells
In order to connect individual subcells in monolithically grown multi-junction solar cells Esaki interband tunnel diodes are widely used. In this work, numerical simulations of an isolated III–V
Input Parameters for the Simulation of Silicon Solar Cells in 2014
This review provides complete and representative input parameter sets to simulate six major types of crystalline silicon solar cells to provide a sensible and consistent reference point for researchers on which to base their refinements and extensions.
The Irresistible Charm of a Simple Current Flow Pattern – 25% with a Solar Cell Featuring a Full-Area Back Contact
Screen-printed Al-BSF silicon solar cells have dominated the PV market for decades. Their long-term success is based on a low-complexity cell architecture and a robust production sequence. The
Tunnel oxide passivated carrier-selective contacts based on ultra-thin SiO2 layers grown by photo-oxidation or wet-chemical oxidation in ozonized water
A successful application of carrier selective contacts was demonstrated by using the tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) approach yielding a 24.9% efficient solar cell. A key factor of this
Enhanced lateral current transport via the front N+ diffused layer of n‐type high‐efficiency back‐junction back‐contact silicon solar cells
N‐type back‐contact back‐junction solar cells were processed with the use of industrially relevant structuring technologies such as screen‐printing and laser processing. Application of the low‐cost
