Advanced Silicon Materials for Photovoltaic Applications by Sergio Pizzini

By Sergio Pizzini

This day, the silicon feedstock for photovoltaic cells comes from tactics that have been initially built for the microelectronic undefined. It covers nearly ninety% of the photovoltaic marketplace, with mass creation quantity at the least one order of value better than these dedicated to microelectronics.

However, it truly is demanding to visualize that this sort of feedstock (extremely natural yet seriously penalized through its excessive strength expense) may possibly stay the one resource of silicon for a photovoltaic marketplace that is in non-stop growth, and which has a cumulative development expense in far more than 30% within the previous few years. although experiences recommend that the silicon percentage will slowly reduce within the subsequent 20 years, discovering the way to manufacture a selected sunlight grade feedstock in huge amounts, at a budget friendly whereas holding the standard wanted, nonetheless continues to be a vital factor. skinny movie and quantum confinement-based silicon cells can be a complementary solution.

Advanced Silicon fabrics for Photovoltaic Applications has been designed to explain the complete possibilities of silicon as a multipurpose fabric and covers:

  • Physical, chemical and structural houses of silicon
  • Production routes together with the promise of within your means feedstock for PV applications
  • Defect engineering and the position of impurities and defects
  • Characterization options, and complicated analytical suggestions for steel and non-metallic impurities
  • Thin movie silicon and skinny movie sun cells
  • Innovative quantum results, and 3rd iteration sun cells

With contributions from across the world well-known professionals, this ebook supplies a accomplished research of the state of the art of technique applied sciences and fabric houses, crucial for an individual attracted to the applying and improvement of photovoltaics.
