3 The surfaces of the wafer are coated with a layer of silicon dioxide to form an insulating base and to prevent any oxidation of the silicon which would cause impurities. The silicon dioxide is formed by subjecting the wafer to superheated steam at about 1830°F (1000°C) under several atmospheres of pressure to allow the oxygen in the water vapor to react with the silicon.

More information on these production techniques and the types of silicon used in photovoltaics can be found at the Energy Basics website. To reduce the amount of light reflected by the solar cell—and therefore not used to generate current—an antireflective coating (ARC), often titanium dioxide (TiO 2 ) or silicon nitride (SiN), is deposited on the silicon surface.

Bragg x-ray ptychography of a silicon crystal: …
We experimentally demonstrate the visualization of nanoscale disloion strain fields in a thick silicon single crystal by a coherent diffraction imaging technique called Bragg x-ray ptychography. We also propose that the x-ray microbeam carrying orbital angular momentum is selectively produced by coherent Bragg diffraction from disloion singularities in crystals. This work not only
