Abstract

Since 1989 Kyocera has been researching the high efficiency solar cell using the multicrystalline silicon substrate with 15 cm x 15 cm which is made by Sumitomo Sitix Co., Ltd. The Bifacial Nitride Solar Cell (BSNSC) fabrication process developed by Kyocera has been applied to this large area solar cell. A conversion efficiency of 16. 4 % (Global, AM 1.5, 100 mW per squared centimeters, 25 °C) for the 15 cm × 15 cm multicrystalline silicon solar cell has been obtained by optimizing the front surface structure to reduce the reflective losses and the front electrode pattern an evaporation method.
