AMORPHOUS/SINGLE-CRYSTALLINE SILICON HETEROSTRUCTURE SOLAR CELLS
The structural features and physics of heterostructure solar cells based on a heterojunction between amorphous hydrogenated silicon and crystalline silicon (a-Si:H/c-Si) are considered. The key role of the a-Si:H/c-Si interface properties for operation of solar cells is demonstrated. The effect of c-Si surface treatment on the interface properties and the photovoltaic efficiency is shown.
