Solar Cell Contacts From Tubes – Innovative Fine Line Metallization Technology Promises Higher Efficiency Values
Oct 16, 2014

Together with industrial partners MERCK, HERAEUS and ASYS, researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE have developed innovative new materials and contactless techniques for applying ultrafine, homogeneous contact fingers to solar cells. This ‘dispensing’ technology can be easily integrated into conventional silicon solar cell production lines where it replaces screen printing as the method of applying front side metallization: Consequently material usage is reduced, contact fingers are thinner and more of the semiconductor surface area is exposed to sunlight, which results in increased current collection and relative improvements in efficiency of around two percent. The new technology can also be used to optimize further production steps in solar cell manufacture.
