Abstract

Increasing reliance on carbon-based fossil fuel is likely to cause irreversible damage to global environment. Crystalline silicon (Si) based on pollution free photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation technology is expected to play a dominant role in this electricity generation transition from carbon to silicon. Since Si wafer represents almost 50% of the PV conversion cost, thinner wafers are highly effective at reducing the production cost. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop alternative device configurations and processing methods for thinner Si wafer. Si wafer has to go through cleaning process, thinning process, textured process and partially transparent technique. In this work optical transmission through Si is investigated as a function of wafer thickness. For this improved performance, surface morphology, optical properties and the optical transmission near band gap is measured with custom-designed rear infra-red (IR) transmission measurement system. Si wafer with the textured surface have more light absorption than the as-cut and planar Si wafer.
