Anti-reflection Coatings for Silicon Solar Cells

 Daniel Nilsen Wright
  14th-Oct-2009
Description: Solar cell efficiency is given mainly by the cell’s ability to convert incoming photons to electron-hole pairs and avoid the electron and hole recombining before they reach the solar cell contacts. The anti-reflective coating (ARC) increases solar cell performance by reducing the amount of reflected photons. Some ARC films passivate recombination sites on the surface and in the bulk of Si. Anti-reflective coatings are necessary to avoid optical losses and increase the current of the solar cell.
