ABSTRACT
Shunt resistance in surface passivated Si solar cells has been experimentally shown to be temperature dependent with a maximum value of 2×107 Ω cm2. Mechanisms responsible for shunt resistance are identified as a combination of multistep tunneling and thermal trapping-detrapping of carriers through the defect states in the space-charge region.
