Thesis

A new texturing technique for silicon solar cells using gas phase etching

Abstract:

Solar energy is vital to combatting climate change. However, not all incident photons can transmit into a typical solar cell for electricity generation, a portion of the photons are lost to front surface reflectance. By changing the front surface texture of typical solar cells from microscale to nanoscale, the solar cell front surface reflectance (at wavelengths of interest), can be reduced to almost 0%. Such a change would increase the number of photons available in the solar cell for electr...
