Nickel-Copper metallization for silicon solar cells offers a cost effective alternative to

traditional screen printed silver paste technology. The main objective of this work is to

study the formation of nickel silicide contacts with and without native silicon dioxide SiO2.

The effect of native SiO2 on the silicide formation has been studied using Raman

spectroscopy, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry and sheet resistance

measurements which shows that SiO

2

acts as a diffusion barrier for silicidation at low
