Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Easy to make, potentially high efficient Schottky type solar cells are presented. Patterning of the cells of Si wafers was achieved by photo-ablation using a UV Excimer laser. We have found that the patterned cells were as much as 15% more efficient than non-patterned cells.
