The reason for passivating the rear side of the wafer is twofold: First, it acts as an optical reflector, so instead of light just passing straight through the wafer, some of it bounces back and goes through the wafer a second time, enabling twice the opportunity for interaction with an atom to generate current; second, rear side passivation reduces recombination.
