The aim of this study is to understand the effect of the glass frit chemistry used in thick-film Ag pastes on the electrical performance of the silicon solar cell. The study focuses on the physical behavior of the glass frit during heat treatment as well as the resulting Ag−Si contact interface structure. We observe that the glass frit transition temperature (Tg) and softening characteristics play a critical role in the contact interface structure. The glass transition temperature also… CONTINUE READING
