Almere, the Netherlands – April 03, 2017 – Although the mainstream PV technology still relies on wafer-based p-type crystalline silicon at the moment, a gradual but significant shift can be observed towards n-type silicon PV technology.
In this project the partners will research and develop a new, bifacial, n-type cell architecture based on passivated contacts and with a target efficiency of 22.5%.
The project result will be the architecture and processes of the new bifacial n-type solar cell. This cell will feature a diffused, selective emitter combined with passivated contacts at the rear using tunneling oxide and poly silicon n+ layer.
