Capacitance–voltage (C–V) measurements were carried out on conventional n+-p-p+ structure based silicon solar cells (SSC) of different thicknesses (40–300 μm) and on induced junction n+-p-p+ structures (IJS) under dark at room temperature. The capacitance is determined from the best fit of the measured data. It is shown that the capacitance under reverse and forward bias condition can be divided into two distinct regions, which are correlated to the quality of the junction and effectiveness of back surface field (BSF). It is found that the IJS has shallow junction and better BSF than the conventional solar cells.
