Micro-Raman spectroscopy with high spatial resolution was used to analyse the stress distribution in the vicinity of grain boundaries in multicrystalline silicon (mc-Si). Stress in mc-Si is crucial for the stability of the material and may cause yield problems during manufacturing of solar cells due to breakage. Two types of mc-Si, block cast and ribbon grown Si samples, were scanned in our experiments. Changes in stress of about 40MPa over a scale of several micrometers were detected around the grain boundaries.

The factors, influencing the accuracy of the local stress measurement were analysed. Three major restrictions of the technique have to be considered: (i) local heating, (ii) the signal-to-noise ratio and (iii) surface topology.

The samples were polished, which allows a better sensitivity to weak stress as is the case in mc-Si materials. Micrographs of the samples were taken by optical microscopy to locate the region of interest.
