Investigation of the impurity tolerance of semicrystalline silicon solar cells silicon impact program

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A Veeco resistance heated Czochralski crystal growing furnace was redesigned to allow for the in-situ casting of semicrystalline silicon ingots. The casting technique that is being employed in this program is based upon the Bridgeman technique of crystal growth. Samples of metallurgical grade silicon have been obtained from Ohio-Ferro Alloys corporation and preparation of this material has begun for incorporation into the experimental castings. Initial casting experiments have commenced using pure semiconductor grade silicon to establish a base line process for later experiments which will employ metallurgical grade silicon.
