This performance upgrades happen due to research on various subjects like the effect of Indium-Tin-Oxide (ITO) layer on the behavior of the cell [5], the impact of front contact work function [6], the effect of surface texturing of crystalline silicon (c-Si) wafer [7], the role of Fermi state of doped hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) layers and band offsets [8], and the effect of intrinsic layer on the cell function [9].
The effect of this refinement is to constrain the charge storage regions to lie totally within the intrinsic layer rather than extending into the P and N regions to either side.
4,5~ The Mott barrier is formed by a thin intrinsic layer sandwiched between the top metal contact and a charge sheet created by selective doping.
