Abstract:

The solar photovoltaic industry is driven towards increasing cell efficiency while reducing cost. Ink jet process offers an attractive, non-contact method enabling reduced capital equipment cost, fewer process steps and higher throughput. This study focuses on inkjet processes development of directly etching through a Silicon Nitride layer (anti-reflection layer), selectively doping and precisely dispensing a seed layer, also their combination at a shot to prepare for conventional screen printing afterwards or for low cost electroplating for the “selectiveemitter” solar cell fabrication.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
