In the efficiency-driven photovoltaic (PV) industry, the market dominating crystalline silicon (c-Si) technology has been developing towards PV devices with carrier-selective passivating contacts (CSPCs). Especially, the silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cell, based on hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) contact stacks, and the poly-Si...

Reducing indium consumption, which is related to the transparent conductive oxide (TCO) use, is a key challenge for scaling up silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cell technology to terawatt level. In this work, we developed bifacial SHJ solar cells with reduced TCO thickness. We present three types of In<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>-based TCOs,...

A logical next step for achieving a cost price reduction per Watt peak of photovoltaics (PV) is multijunction PV devices. In two-terminal multijunction PV devices, the photo-current generated in each subcell should be matched. Intermediate reflective layers (IRLs) are widely employed in multijunction devices to increase reflection at the...

In high-efficiency silicon solar cells featuring carrier-selective passivating contacts based on ultrathin SiOx/poly-Si, the appropriate implementation of transparent conductive oxide (TCO) layers is of vital importance. Considerable deterioration in passivation quality occurs for thin poly-Si-based devices owing to the sputtering damage...

Hydrogenated Indium Oxide (IOH) has been recognized as a high performance transparent conductive oxide (TCO) due to its excellent mobility (&gt;100 cm2/Vs) and high transparency (&gt;90%) in the visible and near infrared region of the spectrum. Plasma enhanced spatial atomic layer deposition (PESALD), a new type of deposition process developed...

Broadband transparent conductive oxide layers with high electron mobility (μ<sub>e</sub>) are essential to further enhance crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cell performances. Although metallic cation-doped In<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> thin films with high μ<sub>e</sub> (&gt;60 cm<sup>2</sup> V<sup>-1</sup> s<sup>-1</sup>) have been extensively...

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 ...

The perovskite solar cell is considered a promising candidate as the top cell for high-efficiency tandem devices with crystalline silicon (c-Si) bottom cells, contributing to the cost reduction of photovoltaic energy. In this contribution, a simulation method, involving optical and electrical modelling, is established to calculate the...

Nano-textured interfaces between two media of different refractive indices scatter light. The angular distribution and the intensity of the scattered light are deter- mined by the geometry of the nano-textures and the difference of the refractive indices of the two media. Thin-film silicon solar cells (TFSSC), which convert sunlight directly...

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...
