Passivating Hole Contacts for Silicon Wafer Solar Cells

Back to search results

The proposed project aims to develop novel electron and hole contacts for crystalline silicon with a high majority carrier conductivity and low minority carrier recombination rate. This will be done by exploiting the unique properties of atomic layer deposition to engineer unique multilayer structures with an atomic level control ensured by advanced in situ as well as ex-situ metrology. The novel contacts developed in this project can be used as building blocks for future record-efficiency solar cells while the fundamental insights obtained about the synthesis of these multi-layered structures will benefit another research field as well.
