Abstract

The dependent of the usage of petroleum to produce energy need to be reduce since the fossil fuel price is not predictable. The alternative way to generate energy need to be done to encounter this situation and solar is one of the solutions. Solar cells are used to capture the photon which is then generate the energy. However the efficiency of the cell to turn the amount of photon to electricity needs to be high. Therefore cell enhancing is needed. To enhance a cell involve the whole process developing the cell from A-Z. In this paper, only Si solar cell will be discuss and optimising this kind of cell will only be focused at back end process or the processes after wafer texturing. The process involve in back end process will be PECVD nitrate deposition, metal contact screen printing and metal paste co-firing.
