This study proposed a new method of neutron transmutation doping silicon (NTD-Si) for producing the n-type spherical solar cell at the high temperature engineering test reactor (HTTR), in which the Si-particles are irradiated directly instead of the cylinder Si-ingot as in the conventional NTD-Si. By using a screw, an identical resistivity could be achieved for the Si-particles without a complicated procedure as in the NTD with Si-ingot. Also, the reactivity and neutron flux swing could be kept to a minimum because of the continuous irradiation of the Si-particles.
