Simplified rear-side patterning for silicon heterojunction IBC solar cells: development of the in situ “nano-envelope” dry clean

2018 IEEE 7th World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion (WCPEC) (A Joint Conference of 45th IEEE PVSC, 28th PVSEC & 34th EU PVSEC), 2018

The heterojunction interdigitated back-contact (HJ IBC) cell technology enables remarkably high cell efficiencies, but requirescomplex processing for the rear-side patterning of the interdigitated a-Si:H electron and hole hetero-contacts. Therefore, the HJ IBC process flow must be simplified into a sequence that is cost-effective and industrially-compatible. Towards this goal, a litho-free, all-dry process sequence is being developed. As part of this ...

  • Radial-Basis Function Networks

    This chapter focuses on the radial-basis function (RBF) network as an alternative to multilayer perceptrons. It will be interesting to find that in a multilayer perceptron, the function approximation is defined by a nested set of weighted summations, while in a RBF network, the approximation is defined by a single weighted sum. The chapter focuses on the use of a Gaussian function as the radial-basis function. The reason behind the choice of the Gaussian function as the radial-basis function in building RBF networks is that it has many desirable properties, which will become evident as the discussion progresses. It is important to point out that RBF networks and multilayer perceptrons can be trained in alternative ways besides those presented. For multilayer perceptrons, the backpropagation algorithm is simple to compute locally and it performs stochastic gradient descent in weight space when the algorithm is implemented in an online learning mode.

  • Simplified rear-side patterning for silicon heterojunction IBC solar cells: development of the in situ “nano-envelope” dry clean

    The heterojunction interdigitated back-contact (HJ IBC) cell technology enables remarkably high cell efficiencies, but requirescomplex processing for the rear-side patterning of the interdigitated a-Si:H electron and hole hetero-contacts. Therefore, the HJ IBC process flow must be simplified into a sequence that is cost-effective and industrially-compatible. Towards this goal, a litho-free, all-dry process sequence is being developed. As part of this simplified process flow, a novel in situ dry clean process called “nano- envelope” clean is developed to replace the wet cleaning after dry etching of a-Si:H. Surface contaminationanalysis and passivation studies prove that the developed dry clean is as effective as the standard wet clean. Since the “nano-envelope” clean can bedone in the same PECVD tool, the sequence from dry etching to repassivation can be done fully in situ.

  • A process for removing moisture from metal surfaces and inhibiting water from readsorbing using organosilanes

    Summary form only given. The storage of ultra-high purity (UHP) gases is a critical issue to the electronics industry. To prepare a storage vessel or delivery manifold for ultra-high purity gas service, all the atmospheric contaminants must be thoroughly removed from the system. Of these contaminants, atmospheric moisture is the most difficult to remove. It readily condenses on metal surfaces in multiple layers with a large heat adsorption. Typically, moisture is removed by purging or evacuation for long periods of time. In some cases it takes several weeks to adequately remove moisture from a delivery system. This is an expensive, time consuming process. Sometimes systems are heated to high temperature to reduce the time required to remove moisture. However, heating is not always practical, and it does nothing to prevent re-adsorption of water if the system is again exposed to ambient atmosphere. In many cases, moisture is the critical contaminant in the gas delivery system. This is especially true when the ultra-high purity gas is corrosive. Gases such as hydrogen chloride, hydrogen bromide, fluorine, tungsten hexafluoride and other halogen containing gases will severely corrode many metals if moisture is present. Corrosion of the storage vessel or delivery manifold can result in introduction of particle or gas-phase impurities into the ultra-high purity gas, or in extreme cases, result in failure of the system. Components such as valves, regulators, and mass now controllers are very susceptible to failure due to corrosion and frequently need to be replaced. This paper describes a new method for rapidly removing moisture from metal surfaces used in the packaging and delivery of high purity bulk and corrosive-speciality gases. Furthermore, the process passivates the metal by forming a hydrophobic surface that prevents water from readsorbing. Reagents of the type RsiXYZ where R is an alkyl group and at least one of X, Y, or Z is a hydrolyzable group are shown to enhance the removal of surface adsorbed moisture and gaseous product (HX). The HX by-product and unreacted RsiXYZ are rapidly and completely purged from the system. Since water is removed from the surface by chemical reaction rather than by simple purging, the initial dry down is faster. In addition to removing adsorbed water, the treatment incorporates a stable organosilicon group into the surface which greatly reduces the polar character associated with the OH terminated surface. The treated surface is hydrophobic inhibiting water from re-adsorbing during a subsequent moisture exposure. Stainless steel surfaces passivated in this manner are shown to have improved corrosion resistance compared to unpassivated stainless steel.

  • Low temperature bonding for 3D interconnects

    Advanced methods for low temperature bonding are reviewed and discussed in terms of the concept of the surface activation and the future outlook of their development in 3D integration. As one of the methods, a new attempt for room temperature bonding is introduced, which enables to bond inorganic materials such as Si oxides, glasses and sapphire as well as single crystalline piezoelectric materials. The method is based on the concept of the surface activated bonding (SAB) with certain modification including formation of Fe nano-adhesion layer which accompanied by additional Si intermediate layer formed by a special ion beam source. It was found that wafers of such materials can be bonded very strongly without any heat treatment at room temperature.

  • Residue defect study on amorphous silicon film

    In advanced technology nodes, many new materials have been introduced to improve the device capability. This means new particle sources are also introduced through more complicated process. Hence, the defect control will be more important for manufacturing and yield improvement. In this paper we addressed one type of residue defect found on surface of amorphous silicon film. The defect source and forming mechanism were revealed by our experiments. Finally, the cleaning method was shared that can remove this defect.
