Silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cells are one of the most promising PV technologies nowadays due to high photoconversion efficiencies and low manufacturing costs. However, standard front/back-contacted (FBC) solar cells feature a front metal grid that brings shading to the front side of the devices, which limits the conversion efficiency of...

Silicon solar cells account for about 95% of the total photovoltaic market share. Poly-Si passivating contacts are promising techniques enabling high performance c-Si solar cells with conversion efficiency over 26.0%. The highly absorptive nature of poly-Si materials makes the transparent passivating contacts attractive, such as poly-Si(O<sub>x<...

Carrier-selective passivating contacts (CSPC) have been proven to be effective in suppressing recombination losses at metal-silicon interface in high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells. The poly-Si-based CSPCs consisting of SiOX/poly-Si stacks are used in this thesis due to their compatibility with high thermal budgets. CSPCs with thin...
