AbstractIn this work, we used the numerical simulation method to study the tunnel oxide passivated carrier selective contacts (TOPCon) structured solar cells, with the focus especially on the paths towards excellent surface passivation and low contact resistance. The presence of an ultra-thin silicon oxide (SiO2) with high quality (typically low interface-states density, At D-it approximate to 1 x 10(10) cm(-2) eV(-1) and low pinhole density, Dph < 1 x 10(-4)) suppresses the recombination of carriers a,t the rear surface. As a result, implied open circuit voltage (iV(oc)) could be promoted by a value of more than 30 mV comparing with the solar cell without oxide layer, which is the primary benefit originated from TOPCon structure. Corresponding, the iV(oc), and recombination current density (Joe) could reach 745 mV and similar to 9.5 fA/cm(2) (Delta n = 5 x 10(15) cm(-3)) for the 1-52 cm and 200-Rm n-type wafer covered with high-quality oxide and n.-Si layers. In addition to passivation, a well-designed SiO2/n+-Si backside structure is also critical for carrier collection. The tunneling current is susceptible to oxide thickness, i.e., a 0.2-nm increase in SiO2 thickness results in the decrease of the tunneling current by more than one magnitude under certain circumstance. Fortunately, raising the doping in ntSi layer enhances the tunneling possibility of electron, which allows for a thicker oxide that is favorable to a stable mass production. The simulation suggests that to obtain a high fill factor (FF, >84%), a minimum forward-bias saturated tunneling current of about 0.01 A/cm(2), more favorable of 0.1 A/cm(2), is required for the Si/SiO2/n(+)-Si structure. Generally, our work offers an improved understanding of tunnel oxide, doping layer and their combined effects on TOPCon solar cells. Besides simulation, we also discuss the practical manufactures of how to control the above mentioned parameters, as well as the problems needed to be solved for further work. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd.
