© 2021 Elsevier LtdIon implanted PERC cells have already achieved power conversion efficiencies of about 20.0%. The process flows reported in the literature for the ion implanted PERC cells with commonly utilized Al2O3/SiNx rear passivation stack, which has the benefit of being less sensitive to surface roughness than SiO2/SiNx stack passivation, notably suffer from the additional process steps such as single side polishing and single side protection. Here, we present a simplified process flow for the fabrication of ion implanted PERC cells having Al2O3/SiNx stack passivation at the textured rear surface without any rear side processing, leading to a power conversion efficiency of 20% at large area. In this context, we show the sensitivity of solar cell efficiency to firing peak temperature, implantation dose, and Al2O3 thickness. The results of the present research will provide a basis for high efficiency implanted PERC cells with significantly reduced workload and cost.
