Japanese group ‘prints’ amorphous silicon photovoltaic cell created using silicon inks

By / February 16, 2011

JAIST researchers have developed three types of silicon ink:  aB-doped p-type, an i-type (intrinsic) and a P-doped type.Credit T. Shimoda; JAIST. Typically, photovoltaic units composed of thin-film silicon materials do not involve amorphous or single-crystalline silicon, and making thin-films with poly-silicon is still a frontier field (see previous post). But researchers at the Japan Advanced…
