Efficient hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) n-i-p solar cells have been fabricated with all doped and undoped a-Si:H layers deposited by hot-wire chemical vapor deposition (HWCVD). The total deposition time of all layers, except the top ITO-contact, is less than 4 minutes. On an untextured stainless steel (SS) substrate, an initial efficiency of 7.12% is reached, with a stable efficiency of 5.4% after 1000 hours 1 sun light soaking. This initial efficiency is reached by incorporating into the p/i interface about 60 Å of intrinsic a-Si:H “edge” material grown under conditions near the transition to microcrystallinity. This edge layer increases the cell's fill factor from 0.60 to 0.68 and the best open-circuit voltage is about 0.88 V. Using textured Ag/ZnOcoated SS supplied by United Solar Corporation, preliminary results of an all-HWCVD solar cell give an initial efficiency of 8.7 %.
