Abstract
Silicon CVD is required to realise the upcoming “kerfless” c-Si thin-film solar cell concepts, like EpiCell, Lift-off and recrystallized wafer equivalent solar cells. To realise these solar cell concepts, a high throughput reactor with the possibility of continuous deposition is needed. For this reason, the ConCVD is the first epitaxy tool with a continuous wafer transport through the entire system. The requirements for such a machine are very sophisticated. Despite the open construction, the flammable and toxic reactor atmosphere must be separated from the surrounding atmosphere and the other way around, impurities must not get inside the reactor. This work reports on process improvement and solar cell results on layers deposited in the ConCVD at Fraunhofer ISE. The ConCVD (Continuous CVD) is a link between lab type reactors and a production reactor (ProConCVD), also developed at the Fraunhofer ISE. Setup improvements could enhance deposition conditions by providing a particle free environment. Furthermore, processes optimisations in this new setup lead to a solar cell result of 13.8%.
