Title: Photoelectric conversion element and method for manufacturing the same

Abstract: The purpose of the invention is to provide a photoelectric conversion element enable to ensure the connection of the contact electrode easily and accurately. The plurality of the laser oscillator in which a semiconductor layer and the p-side electrode are laminated are formed on the same substrate. Each contact electrode formed on the base substrate through each opening of the insulating layer is electrically connected to each p-side electrode. Each opening corresponding to each laser oscillator placed side by side is formed in a staggered configuration in the alignment direction. Each contact electrode is extended in parallel with the alignment direction corresponding to each opening. Accordingly, the space between each opening and the space between each contact electrode which are placed side by side in the alignment direction are widened and the requirement for highly accurate position matching is eliminated. Therefore, each p-side electrode and each contact electrode can be connected easily and accurately.
