On the Interplay Between Microstructure and Interfaces in High-Efficiency Microcrystalline Silicon Solar Cells

This paper gives new insights into the role of both the microstructure and the interfaces in microcrystalline silicon (μc-Si) single-junction solar cells. A 3-D tomographic reconstruction of a μc-Si solar cell reveals the 2-D nature of the porous zones, which can be present within the absorber layer. Tomography thus appears as a valuable technique to… CONTINUE READING
