... energy predictions varied between 1% and 8%, again with the exception of the tandem-junction amorphous silicon modules. The large difference between measured and predicted results for the tandem-junction modules is attributed to performance degradation. Power measurements of the tandem-junction amorphous...

...Claudia Funke; Susann Wolf; Dietrich Stoyan Solar silicon wafers are mainly produced through multiwire-sawing. This sawing implies microcracks on the wafer surface, which are responsible for brittle fracture. In order to reduce the sawing-induced cracks, the wafers are damage etched after sawing...
