Abstract: Different schemes for passivation of solar cells fabricated using casted multicrystalline silicon from Eurosolare are investigated. The efficiency of solar cells with front side oxide surface passivation, front side and/or back side hydrogen plasma passivation are compared. It is shown that oxide passivation of the front surface combined with hydrogen passivation from the back side is the optimum passivation scheme. A 16.2% top efficiency is obtained on 4 cm2 cells implementing this passivation scheme and a 16.8% top efficiency is estimated with an optimized ARC combination.
