Abstract Plated Ni/Cu/Ag contacts are an industrially feasible metallization approach for high efficiency c-Si solar cells with low surface doping concentrations (10 18 cm -3 N D 20 cm -3 ). The 2d-simulations of this work define the minimum requirements on the contact resistivity of metal contacts in a high efficiency solar cell design. The following experimental study of the contact resistivity of plated Ni/Cu/Ag contacts on lowly doped phosphorus emitter demonstrates low contact… CONTINUE READING
