Abstract

The emitter saturation current, Joe, was measured for boron diffused emitters of sheet resistivities ranging from 10 to 4000 Ω/□. Boron tribromide was the diffusion source. The saturation current was measured for SiO2 passivation. It was found that a forming gas anneal was essential for light diffusions to have a low saturation current. Values for Joe varied from 1.5 - 300 fA/cm2. The results of the emitter saturation current measurements for boron diffusions are used to model double sided floating junction solar cells that would be made from n-type Cz wafers with a boron diffused emitter.
