An annealing step of 500 - 600 °C for about 1 – 2 hours after phosphorus diffusion improves the border areas of multicrystalline silicon solar cells that were deteriorated from the crucible. Light beam induced current topograms indicate that the effect can be explained by phosphorus gettering. An efficiency increase from 14.5 % to 15.4 % by a 2 hour anneal at 500 °C was observed.
