Silicon and related thin films are applied widely in solar cells and other electronic devices. This comprehensive tutorial will introduce the processing methods, material properties, fundamental nature of interfaces and device engineering concepts. In Part I, the design rules of solar cells will be discussed. In Part II, the processing and properties of all materials and interfaces in a crystalline silicon solar cell will be reviewed. In Part III, the wide variety of high efficient crystalline silicon device architectures including their fundamental approaches to reduce the optical and electrical losses will be presented. In Part IV, the design schemes for modules, the characterization methods for performance and reliability, photovoltaic applications and their role in the energy transition will be discussed.
