These potentially cost-effective cells are systematically characterized with electron microscopy-based techniques, external quantum efficiency, and standard current-voltage measurements. We conclude that 5% efficient cells are now attainable, and much room remains for further improving device performance. We are confident that 10%-efficient EVA solar cells will be realized in the future, with proper metallization schemes, good light trapping, and improved poly-Si film quality. ©2009 IEEE.||Source Title:||Conference Record of the IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/69585||ISBN:||9781424429509||ISSN:||01608371||DOI:||10.1109/PVSC.2009.5411644|
