Black Silicon Solar Cells Roll Off Production Line

Deemed a notable feat, Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd. announces its self-developed high efficiency black silicon solar cells have been successfully put into mass production. The company started the development on black silicon solar cell processing technology in June 2017.

 

Suntech's R&D team has effectively fixed all the issues related to diamond wire sawing of multi-crystalline silicon wafers in mass production with self-developed metal assisted chemical etching. Through optimized nanostructured processing technology, an additional absolute efficiency gain up to 0.3% has been achieved comparing with additive direct texturing. It is expected that by the first quarter of 2018, the annual capacity of the black silicon solar cell will reach 500 MW.
