It is shown that recent progress has been made in the fabrication at Trina Solar mainly by improving the high excess carrier lifetimes τ due to a considerable reduction of mid-gap states. However, the high lifetimes in the wafers are still reduced by interstitial iron by a factor of about 10 at maximum power point (mpp) conditions compared to mono-crystalline Cz wafers of equivalent resistivity. The low lifetime areas of the wafers seem to be limited by precipitates, most likely Cu. Through simulations, it appears that dislocations reduce cell efficiency by about 0.25% absolute. The best predictors for PERC cell efficiency from ingot metrology are a combination of mean lifetime and dislocation density because dislocations cannot be improved considerably by gettering during cell processing, while lifetime-limiting impurities are gettered well. In future, the material may limit cell efficiency above about 22.5% if the concentrations of Fe and Cu remain above 1010 and 1013 cm−3, respectively, and if dislocations are not reduced further.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2018-11</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Hahn, Giso</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-01-17T10:22:00Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Xiong, Zhen</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Skorka, Daniel</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Yang, Yang</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Deng, WeiWei</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Winter, Clemens</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Skorka, Daniel</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Zuschlag, Annika</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Zuschlag, Annika</dc:creator> <dc:creator>He, QiuXiang</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Altermatt, Pietro P.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Ye, Feng</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:creator>Altermatt, Pietro P.</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-01-17T10:22:00Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/44594"/> <dc:creator>Yang, Yang</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Hahn, Giso</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
