Effect of the Crucible and Its Coating on the Red Zone in Multicrystalline Silicon – Analysis on Solar Cell Level


The purpose of this work is to investigate the influence of the crucible and its coating on the deteriorated edge zone (also called “red zone”) during directional solidification of multicrystalline silicon (mc-Si). Since the material quality is changed by the processing of solar cells due to, e.g., gettering and hydrogenation, this study was performed on… (More)
