However, due to the measurement principal, the sign of the measured retardation value can not be determined. (2019), has been carried out in this field in recent years. Phys. A schematic illustration of the developed BIPVT panel is shown in Fig. For a p-type c-Si substrate, an n-type top layer, while for an n-type c-Si substrate, a p-type top layer acts as emitter through a thermal diffusion. Accordingly, the stress-optical parameters πij(V) in Voigt notation are related to the stress-optical coefficients πijkl in tensor notation by the following equation: In order to account for different crystalline orientations of silicon, a rotation matrix Rij is introduced. Figure 3Orientation of the indicatrix on a {100}-silicon wafer to describe the birefringence with reference to the global (x, y, z) coordinate system where the x–y plane is located on the [001] plane. With the subsequent development of integrated circuits, this type of solar cell has been predominant on the market; its market share has never fallen below 80%. In comparison to models given in the literature, the stress-optical law derived in this work shows a close resemblance in shape to the work of Liang et al. of Silicon Reviewed in E.

Revisions: 1 Production costs are often deeply affected by production scale, and solar cells are no exception. By virtue of its remarkable electrical and optical characteristics, silicon is used in countless industrial, consumer, optical, computer, and power generation applications. Therefore, the change in the indices of refraction can be expressed by subtracting Eq. (15b) from Eq. (15a). This type of silicon is used in rooftop and space applications.
