Abstract

The dissolution and gettering of iron is studied during the final fabrication step of multicrystalline silicon solar cells, the co-firing step, through simulations and experiments. The post-processed interstitial iron concentration is simulated according to the as-grown concentration and distribution of iron within a silicon wafer, both in the presence and absence of the phosphorus emitter, and applying different time-temperature profiles for the firing step. The competing effects of dissolution and gettering during the short annealing process are found to be strongly dependant on the as-grown material quality. Furthermore, increasing the temperature of the firing process leads to a higher dissolution of iron, hardly compensated by the higher diffusivity of impurities. A new defect engineering tool is introduced, the extended co-firing, which could allow an enhanced gettering effect within a small additional time
