Photovoltaic enhancement of Si micro- and nanostructure solar cells via ultrafast laser texturing
The purpose of the present study was to achieve laser-microtextured Si structures, the material used as silicon wafers, with a thickness of 330 mu m for a fast laser texturing technique, in order to produce micro-/nanosurface textures by means of a UV femtosecond laser. A textured silicon surface was prepared that has the capability to trap light, thereby greatly reducing the visible light reflection for photovoltaic cells. The textured surface was measured by scanning electron microscope. The results showed a photocurrent increase of about 25% in the laser-textured zones.
