The p-type monofacial passivated emitter and rear cell (PERC) is currently entering into mass production, but the efficiency of this type of cell is affected by light-induced degradation (LID). A novel solar cell design is
introduced here – BiCoRE, which is an acronym for ‘bifacial co-diffused rear emitter’.
