Silicon heterojunction solar cell architecture is one of the industrial high-efficiency solar cell concepts, highlighted by its potential for a high open circuit voltage. It is also suited to light-weight flexible applications because of its capability to very thin wafers. In this work, the potential of very thin SHJ solar cells is investigated. In addition, new contact materials are investigated further improvement from the optical point of view.
