SLS: One of the Modern Technologies of Laser Surface Treatment

SLS: One of the Modern Technologies of Laser Surface Treatment Photovoltaic cells are one way of achieving solar energy. One of the stages of their fabrication is the production of front electrode. The application of an unconventional method of selective laser sintering using the $$\hbox {CO}_{2 }$$ CO 2 laser for the fabrication of front electrode of silicon photovoltaic cell was a real challenge. The most notable research results yielded by the research indicate what should be the focus of further investigation. The main objective of the paper is to work out the guidelines to be applied to laser micromachining of the front electrode of the photovoltaic cell concerning the selection of parameters such as the laser beam and laser beam feed rate, which give the possibility to assure its proper quality and suitable operating properties (including also its electrical properties). The investigation results obtained should yield the precise assessment of the laser micromachining conditions for the fabrication of front electrode of photovoltaic cells to improve their quality by the minimization of the Ag–Si interface resistance.
