Abstract:

The purpose of this research is the development of high efficiency, low cost silicon solar cells. The objective is high yields, in the order of 70 of the cells having efficiencies in the range of 12 to 14 leading to a cell cost of 2.00 to 3.00 for a cell having dimensions of 1 cm by 2 cm. Both N on P and P on N cell structures are to be studied and the cells optimized for use in terrestrial environment with and without utilization of solar concentrators.
