Paper Title:
Improvement the Open Circuit Voltage of Amorphous Silicon Solar Cells by Treating the P Layer with Hydrogen Plasma
  Abstract

It is necessary to improve the open circuit voltage of amorphous silicon solar cells for its applications. In this paper, we discuss the effects of hydrogen plasma treatment on the P layer and the performance of the amorphous silicon solar cells. The result shows that the open circuit voltage increased by 0.0257V, the fill factor increased by 0.039 and the energy conversion efficiency increased by 9%. The highest VOC we got was 0.99V. Treating P layer with hydrogen plasma has been demonstrated to result in materials with improved crystalline volume fraction which was very effective to increase the light absorption of the intrinsic layer. What is more, it could be easily integrated into the amorphous silicon solar cell mass production process.
