Original Abstract

Different types of mono-crystalline solar cell surfaces are presented in this article. Reactively sputtered layers of different compositions (SiNx, AlN and SiC) are used for passivation coatings on both cells sides. Sputtering technology gives the possibility to replace high-temperature processes which decrease surface and bulk defect density. Consequently, sputtering results in higher solar cell efficiency. Surface and bulk recombination parameters were measured by means of microwave photoconductivity decay (MW-PCD).
