Original Abstract

This article is focused on single-crystal silicon solar cells study. The function of solar cell could be affected by many defects e.g. dislocations or impurities in silicon. These defects are often local and can result in lower efficiency or shorter solar cell lifetime. Consequently, we can observe many of defects in electric characteristics of solar cells. Measured IV-characteristics and noise signals provide information for defects classification and/or identification. The results of two basic types of the silicon solar cells measuring at very low temperatures are presented in this paper. Used types of solar cells differ in surface texturing. A cryogenic system with wide range of regulated temperatures is used for this measuring. The microscopic study results of samples surface scanning are also presented.
