摘要: The hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H)/hydrogenated microcrystalline silicon (mu c-Si:H) double p-type window layer has been developed and applied for improving microcrystalline silicon-germanium p-i-n single-junction thin-film solar cells deposited on textured SnO2:F-coated glass substrates. The substrates of SnO2:F, SnO2:F/mu c-Si:H(p), and SnO2:F/a-Si: H(p) were exposed to H-2 plasma to investigate the property change. Our results showed that capping a thin layer of a-Si: H(p) on SnO2:F can minimize the Sn reduction during the deposition process which had H-2-containing plasma. Optical measurement has also revealed that a-Si: H(p) capped SnO2:F glass had a higher optical transmittance. When the 20 nm mu c-Si: H(p) layer was replaced by a 3 nm a-Si: H(p)/17 nm mu c-Si:H(p) double window layer in the cell, the conversion efficiency (eta) and the short-circuit current density (J(SC)) were increased by 16.6% and 16.4%, respectively. Compared to the standard cell with the 20 nm mu c-Si:H(p) window layer, an improved conversion efficiency of 6.19% can be obtained for the cell having a-Si:H(p)/mu c-Si: H(p) window layer, with V-OC = 490 mV, J(SC) = 19.50 mA/cm(2), and FF = 64.83%.
