    Abstract: The cost effective conversion of solar energy into electricity via solar cells remains an ongoing concern of researchers worldwide. The use of polysilicon has been suggested as a possible alternative to achieve this goal. The presence of traps in the grain boundaries having dangling bonds, however, limits the photovoltaic efficiency of solar cells ... Show More
