Title: History of the Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cell Research Program at Sandia National Laboratories

Abstract

The Sandia Photovoltaic Program conducted research in crystalline-silicon solar cells between 1986 and 2000 for the U.S. Department of Energy. This period saw rapid improvements in the fundamental understanding of c-Si materials and devices, improvements in c-Si PV manufacturing and control, and a rapid expansion of c-Si PV manufacturing capacity. Crystalline-silicon technology has provided the basis for PV to emerge as a serious option for global energy needs. The c-Si cell research at Sandia examined c-Si materials, devices, processing, and process integration. This report summarizes research conducted in this program over the past 15 years.
