To improve the conversion efficiency of c-Si solar cells, it is crucial to quench the recombination losses at c-Si/metal interface. Such recombination losses are able to be reduced by using carrier-selective passivating contacts by means of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) and poly-crystalline silicon (poly-Si)/tunneling silicon oxide ...

Crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells based on the polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) passivating contact is becoming one of the most promising solar cell structures that enable high efficiency due to the minimization of metal contact recombination. The interdigitated back contact (IBC) crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells based on poly-Si...

In the ongoing search for (new) highly efficient and cheap photovoltaic materials, orthorhombic barium disilicide has sparked recent interest. Studies have shown that BaSi2 exhibits good electrical properties, a bandgap of 1.3 eV and a high absorption coefficient. However, these studies have mainly been performed on molecular beam epitaxially...

As the number of large scale photovoltaic power plants (which also known as solar parks) is growing in recent years, standard activities related to the system such as the operation and maintenance of the plant and grid management have become more crucial. In order to ensure a standard quality of these activities, accurate irradiance measurement...

Achieving high efficiency solar cells becomes more interesting in order to make solar cell become cost competitive to the other renewable energy sources. Transparent conductive oxide (TCO) which has a requirement to be chemically stable, high transparency and high conductivity, and also application for light trapping application makes it...

The modern world is facing challenges like the depletion of fossil fuels and the rising demand of energy while decreasing CO2 emission to counteract climate change. As the vast majority of mankind populates (mega-)cities, one option of tackling these challenges could be the installation of photovoltaic/thermal(PV/T) hybrid-solar systems on the...

The low conversion efficiency of thin-film silicon solar cells currently prevents them from competing, commercially, with the dominant crystalline silicon technology. The small thickness of the photo-active layer in thin-film silicon solar cells is an advantage for reducing raw material consumption and increasing industrial throughput, but...

Advanced texturization is a promising approach to increase the performance of thin-film solar cells. Currently, light trapping schemes implemented in state-of-the-art devices utilize randomly textured interfaces to increase their optical performance. Periodic gratings, however, have the potential to outperform their random counterparts and are...

Within thin-film silicon solar cells, the so-called Transparent Conductive Oxide (TCO) plays an important role. The optimization of TCOs is a very meticulous process since these thin layers not only need to be both highly transparent and conductive, but are also used for light management; that is manipulating the path of the light through the...
