Lichtinduzierte Galvanotechnik zur Metallisierung von Siliziumsolarzellen
Light-induced electroplating for the metallization of silicon solar cells
An overview is offered of light-induced metal elec-trodeposition (light-induced plating. LIP) as used in the metallising of p-n type semiconductor components. The fundamental relationships between illumination, potential and current are discussed. A method for determining average currentflux at the cathode is presented. Typical applications in the field ofphoto-voltaics are described and discussed.
