Silicon heterojunction solar cells.


Silicon heterojunction solar cells.

Fahrner, W.R. et al.

Trans Tech Publications


198 pages



Materials Science Foundation; v.31-32


Attempts have been made to reduce the cost of manufacturing solar cells by replacing conventional cells made with mono-crystalline silicon and diffusion, with hetero-junction cells made using cheap starting silicon and pn-junction fabrication. Fahrner, M. Muehlbauer, and H.C. Neitzert (not further identified) review the physics, use, and layer sequence of such cells, then assemble condensed articles--one page each-- published between 1975 and 2005 on five different varieties of them. There is no index.
