Abstract

The unpredictable fossil fuel price makes the dependant of the usage of the petroleum to produce energy need to be reduced. Solar cells are used to capture the photons which generate the energy. This is the alternative way to generate energy. However the efficiency of the cells to turn the amount of photon to electricity needs to be high and so the cells enhancement is needed. This involved the whole process of the developing of the cells. Only Si solar cells will be discussed and the processes involved would be metal contact screen printing and metal paste co-firing. After the IV characteristics were measured, it shows that when higher annealing temperature of the profile was used, all the parameter will increase accordingly. However, profile with the highest annealing temperature will burn the paste as it will decrease the quality of the cell. This is considered as over heat to the paste.
