Multi-Layer Inkjet Printed Contacts for Si Solar Cells (Poster)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objective of this report is to develop inkjet printing (including tools, inks, and processing conditions) for high-quality Ag contacts for Si solar cells. The conclusions are: (1) Tools and inks for the atmospheric inkjet printing of Ag metallization for Si solar cells have been developed. (2) Line widths, conductivities and thicknesses comparable to, or better than, those produced by screen printing. (3) A new fire-through ink and layered printing were found to decrease the processing temperature for contact formation to as low as 650 C and improve printed cell performance.
