Description

Silicon (Si) solar cells are the dominant technology used in the Photovoltaics industry. Field-effect passivation by means of electrostatic charges stored in an overlying insulator on a silicon solar cell

Silicon (Si) solar cells are the dominant technology used in the Photovoltaics industry. Field-effect passivation by means of electrostatic charges stored in an overlying insulator on a silicon solar cell has been proven to be a significantly efficient way to reduce effective surface recombination velocity and increase minority carrier lifetime. Silicon nitride (SiNx) films have been extensively used as passivation layers. The capability to store charges makes SiNx a promising material for excellent feild effect passivation.
