Nanocrystalline Silicon thin Film Solar Cells

The aim of this paper is to determine advantages and disadvantages of replacing amorphous silicon by nanocrystalline one in thin film solar cells with different structures. Review of national and international literature has shown the effective technologic ways of replacing amorphous silicon by nanocrystalline one in each of three possible structures of photovoltaic cells: structure of a p-n-junction, cascade or multi-layered structure and НIT structure.
