Abstract

N-type silicon with aluminum emitters for rear junctions was studied; aluminum back surface fields were replaced with n-type silicon wafers. Aluminum rear emitters for n-type silicon solar cells were studied with various rapid thermal processing conditions. With fast ramping-up and fast cooling, an aluminum rear junction was formed uniformly with low emitter recombination current. The effects of junction quality on solar cell efficiency were investigated.
