The latest results on the use of porous silicon (PS) as an antireflection coating (ARC) in simplified processing for multicrystalline silicon solar cells are presented. The optimization of a PS selective emitter formation results in a 14.1% efficiency multicrystalline (5×5 cm2) Si cell with evaporated contacts processed without texturization, surface passivation, or additional ARC deposition. Specific attention is given to the implementation of a PS ARC into an industrially compatible screen-printed solar cell process. Both the chemical and electrochemical PS ARC formation method are used in different solar cell processes, as well as on different multicrystalline silicon materials. Efficiencies between 12.1 and 13.2% are achieved on large-area (up to 164 cm2 ) commercial Si solar cells
