TL;DR: In this article, an al-doped ZnO (AZO) film was continuously deposited by DC magnetron sputtering using pure Ar on a thin AZO seed layer prepared using an approximately 4% dilution of oxygen with Ar. X-ray diffraction measurements showed that the AZO film grown on the seed layer exhibited a much higher crystallinity and larger grain size than that without the seed-layer.
Abstract: Al-doped ZnO (AZO) film was continuously deposited by DC magnetron sputtering using pure Ar on a thin AZO seed layer prepared using an approximately 4% dilution of oxygen with Ar. X-ray diffraction measurements showed that the AZO film grown on the seed layer exhibited a much higher crystallinity and larger grain size than that without the seed layer. The electrical properties such as resistivity and Hall mobility were improved. The average visible transmittance was increased from 81.6 to 86.2%, and near infrared (NIR) transmittance was increased from 76.0 to 84.4% by employing the seed layer. The haze value characterizing the light scattering property was significantly increased from 59.4 to 89.5% in the visible region by the seed layer, and it was increased from 15.1 to 50.8% in the NIR region. Surface topography analysis showed that the bilayer AZO film had larger craters allowing for improvement of the light scattering properties than the conventional AZO film without the seed layer.

TL;DR: In this article, the structure of an interdigitated back contact was adopted with crystalline silicon heterojunction solar cells to reduce optical loss from a front grid electrode, a transparent conducting oxide (TCO) layer, and a-Si:H layers as an approach for exceeding the conversion efficiency of 25%.
Abstract: The crystalline silicon heterojunction structure adopted in photovoltaic modules commercialized as Panasonic's HIT has significantly reduced recombination loss, resulting in greater conversion efficiency. The structure of an interdigitated back contact was adopted with our crystalline silicon heterojunction solar cells to reduce optical loss from a front grid electrode, a transparent conducting oxide (TCO) layer, and a-Si:H layers as an approach for exceeding the conversion efficiency of 25%. As a result of the improved short-circuit current (J sc ), we achieved the world's highest efficiency of 25.6% for crystalline silicon-based solar cells under 1-sun illumination (designated area: 143.7 cm 2 ).
