Original Abstract

This paper deals with the use of micro-plasma noise for solar cells diagnostic purposes. When a high electric field is applied to a PN junction containing some technological imperfections, enhanced impact ionization arises in micro-sized regions, thus producing so-called micro-plasmas, which in turn can lead to the deterioration in quality or destruction of the PN junction. It is therefore advisable to use methods which can indicate the presence of micro-plasma in the junction and make the quality assessment and quantitative description of the tested cells possible.
