20th EPVSEC Barcelona 2005, 2AO1.3

Outline
Objective and introduction Ingots and cells from artificially contaminated silicon feedstock: – Titanium – Aluminum Analysis of results Implications for feedstock specification

Objective
Determine allowable concentrations of impurities in silicon feedstock for mc-Si solar cells. Reasons: specific Silicon produced for Photovoltaics possibility of Low-cost and abundant Silicon feedstock from carbothermic reduction of quartz. SiO2 + 2C → Si + 2CO Fe, Ti, Al, and C are major impurities in silicon from carbothermic reduction. What are the target levels for these impurities?

Which specs are available?
Si wafer manufacturers: “we like to be on the safe side, the SEMI poly-Si spec [<0.1 ppmw total metals] works for us…” For PV, there exist more specific earlier studies:

J.R. Davis, et al., IEEE Trans El. Dev. ED-27, 677 (1980) Cz-growth

also, Fally et al., Revue Phys. Appl. 22, 529 (1987) mc-Si, but no info on Ti

Analysis of results
15-25% reduction of JscVoc due to 5 ppmw Al or 10 ppmw of Ti is too much to be acceptable. How can we determine the maximum allowable concentration? Can the cell efficiency for other concentrations be modeled and predicted? Is there experimental data to verify such a model?

Do-It-Yourself specification of solar grade silicon
1. Construct PC1D model for your cell process, and calculate cell efficiency versus Leff 2. Use 1/Leff2 ∝ CL (CL is impurity concentration in the feedstock) “generic” plot of cell efficiency versus CL (CL in a.u.). 3. One data point (impurity concentration and cell efficiency) to calibrate CL-scale. 4. Choose acceptance level of cell efficiency (cost analysis! e.g. 97%rel efficiency if feedstock 25% lower cost). 5. Read required impurity concentration from plot.

Conclusions
Clear impact of Ti and Al at ppm level. Dependence of impact on position in ingot modeled according to segregation and linear relation between Leff-2 and Cfeedstock. Extrapolated feedstock specification based on 3%rel cell efficiency reduction: Al: 0.1 ppmw Ti: 0.2 ppmw See the paper for more details, also on carbon, mix of impurities, Fe, and modelling of economics!
