Abstract

This paper investigated the criteria for realizing the multi – crystal silicon solar cell (PV cell) with efficiency. The criteria’s that will enhance the production of silicon solar cell that will be a cheaper method of obtaining silicon that is sufficiently pure was discussed. The objectives of this paper is to carry out research on  optimization of silicon solar cell design, quantum dots and ultra-efficient solar cells, extending the solar cell band gap into infrared, multiple excitons from one photon. The researcher find out that by far the most common material for solar cells (and all other semiconductor devices) is crystalline silicon. Crystalline silicon solar cells come in three primary categories (Single Crystal or Mono-Crystalline Wafers, Poly or Multi crystalline and Ribbon Silicon and others). Poly or Multi crystalline made from cast ingots – large crucibles of molten silicon carefully cooled and solidified. Poly or Multi crystalline cells are cheaper than single crystal cells, but also somewhat less efficient. Poly or Multi crystalline cells can easily be formed into square shapes that cover a greater fraction of a panel than monocrystalline cells, and this compensates for their lower efficiencies.  Attention should be directed to the manufacture of semi-conductor devices like multi – crystal silicon solar cell (PV cell) devices with efficiency, as there lies the future of electronics which can be accessible and very cheap for the purpose of electricity generation and other related applications.
