Abstract

This work shows the effect of plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) on the efficiency and structural properties of the textured c-Si solar cells. The efficiency of the solar cells is increased by depositing the cells with SiN using PECVD technique. The SiN will act as a surface passivation layer thus would slow down the corrosion process of the cells. The fill factor of the solar cells increased 0.1-3.0% after deposited with the SiN. However, the voltage and the current generated by the solar cells still at the average value, 0.55-0.58V and 4.2-4.4 Amps, respectively. In order to improve the efficiency, this work involved the texturization process which is the immersion of the solar cells in different carbonate-based solutions.
