All-Back-Contact Ultra-Thin Silicon Nanocone Solar Cells
Si solar cells with nanostructure would be a cost-effective energy solution when being utilized in a photovoltaic system. However, due to the severe Auger recombination and surface recombination, this kind of solar cells usually yield a relatively lower external quantum efficiency. An all-back-contact design would effectively suppress Auger recombination, while a nanocone structure would reduce the surface, hence decreases the surface recombination. Thus, an all-back-contact thin silicon nanocone solar cells would be superior to its planar counterparts in increasing power conversion efficiency.
