Abstract
A potentially inexpensive way to texture silicon surfaces especially for crystalline silicon thin-film solar cells is the plasma texturing method. This method uses the principle of self-masking and is realised at Fraunhofer ISE using an isotropic and an anisotropic power supply. Even in continuous in-line processing, the process allows a conditioning of the wafer surface in a wide range. In this paper two scientific problems are addressed: first, simulations were performed to find the best texture geometry for a multi crystalline thin film solar cell and second, experimental work was done to develop the exact parameter set for the self masking plasma etching. By this work, we were able to identify good processes for powerful textures.
