Almere, the Netherlands – April 03, 2017 – Levitech is, in combination with TU/e, TUD, Solmates and ECN, continuing this year with the ‘RADAR’ project.
In the RADAR project passivating contacts, based on extrinsically doped metal oxides, poly-SiCx or poly-SiOx will be developed, that are both optimally selective and transparent and enable the application of passivating contacts both at the front side and rear side of bifacial solar cells, therewith improving their conversion efficiency and manufacturability. The project will result in novel, transparent passivating contact materials for high efficiency bifacial solar cells. The industrial compatibility of solar cells containing these new materials will be assessed from the early development stage onward and the individual process steps will be tested on pilot scale equipment.
