Model representation for formation of frontal porous silicon layers for solar cells

Валерій Юрійович Єрохов

Abstract


For obtaining the frontal functional layers of solar cells (SC) was made deep analysis of existing models of porous silicon. The selected models are most effective to create an efficient and cost-effective coating on porous silicon and best adapted to the processes of creating silicon solar cells. Using layers of porous silicon obtained from the model representation simplify the work cycle, reduce product cost and improve performance that will increase the efficiency of manufacturing technology of solar cells


Keywords
