The Monocrystalline Silicon Wafer Solar Cell Group focuses on the development of cost-effective high-efficiency (> 23%) solar cells that are suitable for mass production. 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 (& bulk) passivation, industrially relevant materials for passivated contacts, alternative homogeneous doping technologies, advanced localised doping methods, liquid based novel dielectrics, light trapping, and advanced metallisation schemes.
