A thin-film solar cell is a second generation solar cell that is made by depositing one or more thin layers, or thin film (TF) of photovoltaic material on a substrate, such as glass, plastic or metal. Thin-film solar cells are commercially used in several technologies, including cadmium telluride (CdTe), copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS), and amorphous thin-film silicon (a-Si, TF-Si).

Thin film technology has a world-wide reputation in the field of thin film deposition process and also it paves a way for innovative techniques in large scale applications. Modern thin film technology has evolved into a sophisticated way to increase the performance and esthetic value for making new functional devices.

Amorphous silicon (a-Si) is the non-crystalline form of silicon used for solar cells and thin-film transistors in LCDs. Used as semiconductor material for a-Si solar cells, or thin-film silicon solar cells, it is deposited in thin films onto a variety of flexible substrates, such as glass, metal and plastic.

Amorphous silicon cells generally feature low efficiency, but are one of the most. A technique has been developed for coating low-cost mullite-based refractory substrates with thin layers of solar cell quality silicon.

The technique involves first carbonizing one surface of the ceramic and then contacting it with molten silicon. The silicon wets the carbonized surface and, under the proper thermal conditions, solidifies as a large-grained : B.

However, the large difference of 39% in lattice mismatch and 68% in thermal expansion coefficients (CTE) generates cracks, dislocations and stresses in deposited films that ultimately results in the deterioration of ZnO crystal quality [].Cited by: 4. The term “flexible electronics” encompasses a wide array of applications such as flexible displays, low-cost and/or large-area sensors, conformal lighting, and solar cells to name a few, with one common ingredient: the ability to fabricate electronic and optoelectronic devices on nonrigid substrates such as plastic films, metal foil, or thin glass, without losing the functionality of the Cited by: Presently, several thin film deposition techniques, such as metalorganic chemical vapor deposition [], molecular beam deposition [], and hydride vapor phase epitaxy [], are widely used in industry and academia for growing high-quality GaN thin films on sapphire (Al 2 O 3) or monocrystalline silicon gh a large lattice mismatch of 15% exists between a sapphire substrate and a Author: Wei-Sheng Liu, Yu-Lin Chang, Hui-Yu Chen.

Single-crystal-like silicon (Si) thin films on bendable and scalable substrates via direct deposition are a promising material platform for high-performance and cost-effective devices of flexible electronics.

Another thing to keep in mind in thin film technology is that the scale of the thin films industry is about 1/10 that of silicon industry right now. So the crystalline silicon industry is going full force, gangbusters right now, and the thin film is a growing fraction, but it's on the order of 10% of the total world market.

We have developed a new thermal CVD technique for poly-SiGe thin films that meets the requirements for low-cost fabrication of post-amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) TFTs, i.e., Reactive Thermal CVD featuring a set of reactive source materials of disilane (Si 2 H 6) and germanium tetrafluoride (GeF 4).We succeeded in deposition of poly-SiGe thin films at °C or higher on glass substrates by this.

However, the ones based on thin films have a high potential for significantly lower cost below that of these well-established technologies. An attractive alternative for such a sustainable energy supply is the silicon thin-film solar cell technology.
