Abstract
The pyramid construction was formed with different K3PO4 concentrations under different time and temperatures. The pyramid size, density and uniformity on monocrystalline silicon surface have been studied. We found that the K3PO4 concentrations and temperature has a crucial influence on pyramid density; the time has a significant influence on pyramid size. With the time increasing (from 5min to 30min), the size varies from 1.2 to 3.7 m. The density varies from 0% to 52.2%, with the temperature increasing (from 30 to 90 ). The pyramid size and density obtained in the optimal K3PO4 concentrations (30wt% K3PO4, 2wt K2SiO3, 85 , and 5 min) are close to 1.3 m and 48.0%. The uniform pyramids are obtained in the optimal temperature (30wt% K3PO4, 2wt% K2SiO3, 90 , and 5 min), its biggest size of pyramid is 3.1 m and mean size is 1.1 m. Furthermore, the average reflectivity of silicon surface has also been studied. For the textured silicon surface, the average reflectivity obtained in the optimal etching conditions (6wt% K3PO4+ 2wt% K2SiO3, 85 , and 20 min) is close to 11.6%. This technique provides an alternative way for production high-efficiency silicon solar Cells.
