Tailored crystalline Si thin films are prepared in a slot die- or spin-coating process with Si precursor solutions based on neopantasilane and a subsequent crystallization process. These solution-processed films with a thickness from a few nanometers to 4 μm exhibit excellent key characteristics for the development of high-quality solution-based crystalline Si thin-film solar cells.
