The Monocrystalline Silicon Wafer Solar Cell Group focuses on the development of cost-effective high-efficiency (> 23%) solar cells that are suitable for high-volume manufacturing. Full-size p-type and n-type Cz silicon wafers are used as substrates and processed into monofacial or bifacial solar cells. Selected research topics of the group include silicon surface passivation, silicon bulk passivation, ultra-thin layers and new materials for passivated contacts, liquid based novel dielectrics, alternative doping technologies (e.g. ion implantation and doped thin films), light trapping, laser processing and inkjet printing.
