Multicrystalline silicon for solar cells
2005 (English)In: Thin Solid Films, ISSN 0040-6090, E-ISSN 1879-2731, Vol. 487, no 1-2, 179-187 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Crystal growth processes of multicrystalline silicon and their potential for further development are reviewed. Important parameters for theassessment of the final efficiency of the solar cells and the production yield are the bulk lifetime and the mechanical stability. The distributionand morphology of lattice defects can be related to the electrical properties. In particular oxygen in multicrystalline ingots and carbon in EFGribbons and their interaction with extended defects such as dislocations and grain boundaries will be discussed. The fracture strength dependson microcracks that are introduced through wafer slicing. The current understanding will be reviewed here.
