Abstract
In order to stabilize multicrystalline Si solar cells against potential-induced degradation of the shunting type (PID-s), an intermediate SiO2 layer was grown between the n+-diffused emitter and the PECVD SiN antireflection coating. Two inline processes were investigated and implemented in an industrial pro-cessing sequence: UV oxidation and thermal oxidation in a walking-string furnace. In both cases excellent PID-s resistivity was obtained as measured by a PID-s cell test before encapsulation. After encapsulation in standard glass / ethylene vinyl acetate / backsheet modules the UV oxidized cells exceed the requirements defined in the new edition of the IEC 62804 standard with respect to PID-s resistivity on module level. The thermally oxidized cells are even more stable. Additionally, before PID-s an increase of cell efficiency by 0.2% relative compared to cells without oxide was obtained for thermal SiO2 films.
