PP2.3: Superstrate Liquid-Phase Crystallised Silicon on Glass Cells

Project Coordinator:

Sergey Varlamov

In 2015 research on liquid-phase crystallised silicon on glass (LPCSG) cells focused on improving cell voltages by changing the cell polarity and forming heterojunction, increasing cell currents by optimising cell surface textures and identifying approaches to substrate devices using a front heterojunction cell design.

Due to the limited upside performance potential, a complicated fabrication process and closure of the associated ARENA-funded project, further research on the LPCSG solar cells will not be continued by ACAP.
