Topic: 2. 6 Manufacturing & Production
Summary / Abstract: In the race for higher market shares, PV-production companies worldwide are searching for a concept to further boost their Efficiencies. Therefore, a practical guide is developed to combine the knowledge of both the worldwide paste leader Heraeus Photovoltaics and one leading European Cell-manufacturer SoliTek cells. This guide will cover latest front- and back-side paste developments as well as state of the art cell technology. The four main points of action have been optimizing Diffusion towards higher Sheet resistances, choosing the latest pastes for highest Efficiency potential, determining the perfect layout to lease out this potential and implementing PERC-Technology to further boost the cell performance (See Figure 1).
