Abstract/Summary:


Within this work, a new model of the screen printing process is set up in order to improve the understanding of the screen printing process with focus on the interaction between -paste and -screen. First results show that wall slip behavior of the paste can be significantly improved by adapting the screen chemistry, enabling a lower finger resistances and reduced finger widths. A mean contact finger width of wf = 26 µm combined with a mean finger resistance of RFinger = 99 /m shows the high potential of the newly developed screen chemistry using single-step screen printing. Screen openings of wch = 16µm and printed finger widths of wf = 17µm can be realized on textured Si wafers with ARC. Moreover, finger resistance values far below RFinger = 1000 /m are reached for nominal finger widths down to wf = 18µm. This proves the high potential of the single step screen printing process on the way to ultra-fine line contacts in combination with multi-busbar cell layouts. PERC-type Cz-Si solar cells fabricated with a 5 busbar cell layout and a nominal screen opening of wn = 24µm achieve efficiencies up to max = 22.1%. First multi-busbar solar cells with a 18µm nominal screen opening demonstrate a significant Ag reduction.
