Paper Abstract

This paper deals with a technology for improving the conversion efficiency of glass/TCO/ p-i-n/metal a-Si:H solar cells. The improvement is discussed on the basis of expetimental results mainly for electrode formation involving the transparent conductive oxide(TCO) electrode with ITO/Sn02 double-layered configuration and the back-electrode with a high reflectance in the long wavelength region. Design parameters for the glass-substrate solar cell with an area of more than 100 cm2 are also discussed. Conversion efficiency of more than 7% is demonstrated for the cells with 100 cm2 area under AM1 (100 mW/cm2) illumination.
