Abstract
With respect to cost reduction the main future effort in silicon solar cell technology is to manufacture solar cells with highest possible efficiencies on the thinnest possible wafers ensuring a maximum production yield. The laser-fired contact (LFC) technology that has been developed at Fraunhofer ISE allows the implementation of a dielectrically passivated rear electrode in an easy way and therefore fits these main industry requirements. In this paper the transfer of the LFC-technology to solar cells with screen-printed front end process is reported. Laboratory type solar cells with laser-fired rear electrode have been processed on 170 ?m thin, float-zone silicon (1 ohm cm) and Czochralski silicon (3-6 ohm cm) wafers. On 10x10 cm2 FZ-substrates efficiencies up to 17.1 % have been reached compared to 16.4 % of standard screen-printed solar cells with aluminium back surface field. On 125 mm pseudosquare FZ-wafers even an efficiency of 17.7 % has been achieved. These results clearly demonstrate the compatibility of the LFC approach to the today industrial standard screen-printed solar cell technology. Keywords: laser processing, back contact, manufacturing and processing.
