The goal of this project is to develop industrial polysilicon passivated contact technology for solar cell processing, and an industrial n-type silicon cell manufacturing process with a rear polysilicon passivated contact. The passivated contact is to significantly increase conversion efficiency (target of this project is 22% cell efficiency), and the integral cell process should result in reduced cost, compared to the current n-PASHA cell process.
