Abstract

Solar cell is a semiconductor device that converts solar energy into electricity. First generation solar cells consist of silicon (Si) solar cells. Currently, almost 90% of the photovoltaic (PV) production market is based on Si wafer. This is due to the high efficiency, high durability and a longer life span of 30 years. The standard fabrication process for Si solar cells is initiated by washing and texturing the Si wafer, phosphorus diffusion for the formation of transmitters, the formation of top and bottom electrodes through screen printing and combustion process that completed the fabrication of solar cells. In industry, this standard process is performed on p-type Si wafer. On the other hand, the n-type wafer has a higher potential to produce high-efficiency solar cells. However, the process for producing Si solar cells on n-type Si wafer through a complicated and longer process, such as two diffusion process stages that lead to p-type wafers more widely used as it has a lower fabricating cost. In this study, the current-voltages of n-type Si solar cells fabricated using the adaptation of the standard fabrication process of p-type wafer is analyzed and discussed. From the simulation study using PC1D software, it was found that the efficiency of the p-type and n-type solar cells that were fabricated using the same method were 19.63% and 20.16%. While the experimental results showed efficiency of 9.44% and 5.51% of the p-type and n-type solar cells.
