Abstract: This letter describes a new simple fabrication process, developed recently for "blue response" improvement in low-cost polycrystalline silicon solar cells. A selective emitter is created by heavily doping the emitter, followed by a wet etching-back of the cell area between the fingers. An improvement up to 17 mV in V(OC), 1.5 mA/cm2 in J(SC), and 1% (absolute value) in eta is obtained. Effective phosphorus gettering, self-alignment, and application in a low-cost full screenprinting technology are the main advantages of the proposed process.
