This paper reviews the status of solar cell technology based on n-type crystalline silicon wafers. It aims to explain the reasons behind the strong and increasing attention for n-type cells, including the inherent advantages of n-type base doping for high diffusion length, and for the industrialization of designs with good rear-side electronic and optical properties. The focus will be on cells using diffused junctions.
