Abstract: Excellent surface passivation of boron emitters is demonstrated for industrial plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposited (PECVD) SiO x /AlO x stacks. Emitter saturation current densities of 39 and 34 fA/cm2, respectively, were achieved at 300 K on 80Ω/sq boron emitters after activation by (i) a standard industrial firing process and (ii) a forming gas anneal followed by industrial firing. We find that the surface passivation by SiO x / AlO x stack can be effectively controlled by varying the SiO x layer thickness. This stack is directly applicable to certain high-efficiency solar cell structures, by optimising the SiO x thickness accordingly. © 2012 The Japan Society of Applied Physics.
