Preparation of nanostructured black silicon-based solar cells by ALD

The use of nanotechnology can greatly improve the photoelectric conversion efficiency of photovoltaics. The black battery developed by researchers at Aalto University in Finland through ALD and nanotechnology is a good example. Preparation of nanostructures is accomplished by plasma etching, which can greatly impair the reflection of light. In addition, an appropriate passivation layer can be prepared by ALD to reduce the carrier recombination of the surface layer.

"Nano-structured black cells work very well and actually reduce the reflection of the full spectrum," said Hele Savin, assistant professor of micro and nano sciences at Aalto University, in the report. "The surface prepared by the ALD method has a good surface passivation effect. The surface recombination rate of the black battery is similar to that of the flat surface and the pyramid surface," she said. Both reflectance and passivation are taken into account at the same time, and there is almost no difference in the use of polysilicon and single crystal between black silicon and ALD.

Although Salvin believes that the use of this technology in future silicon-based batteries is still somewhat premature, she still hopes that this technology can greatly improve the photoelectric conversion efficiency. , And it is commercial use of large size.

Salvin's team is also working on other projects at the same time, such as using low-purity silicon materials to make high-efficiency cells, which is usually considered impossible. She said: "We have now found some ways to recycle waste silicon materials to make solar cells. The problem now being researched is that the purity of discarded silicon materials should be industrially controllable and require flexibility. "If this research is successfully commercialized, it will certainly bring about a significant drop in the cost of solar cells.

When asked about when a commercial nanostructured black battery came out, optimistic Salvin said: The prototype of the battery has already been completed in the laboratory. The next step is to study how to make large-scale manufacturing, and look at the scale of the module and the outdoors. test. She said: "In theory, there is no special limitation to commercialization. The cost of manufacturing nanostructures is a key point." On the other hand, when nanostructures are used to reduce reflections, conventional anti-reflection methods are often used. This just offsets the cost of preparing nanostructures.

There is still an unsolved problem: Salvin currently uses sulfur hexafluoride to make nanostructures. However, sulfur hexafluoride (Sulfur Hexafluoride) is a restricted-use gas that is generally not allowed to be directly discharged into the atmosphere. They are currently trying to use new technologies to avoid such a problem and thus do not pollute the environment.
