Original Abstract

We present results of microscale localization and characterization of defects in monocrystalline silicon solar cells using LBIC and Scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM). Although etched silicon is still most effective material for solar cells, some problems with their use in solar plant installation persist due to the defects.

Prezentujeme výsledek mikroskopické lokalizace a charkaterzice defektů v solárních článcích z monokrystalického křemíku a to pomocí metody LBIC a SNOM. Ačkoliv leptaný křemík je stále nejdefektivnějším materiálem pro solární články, přesto vykazuje v článcích celou řadu defektů.
