Direct writing of solar cell components is an attractive processing approach. We have fabricated a 6.8% Si solar cell using silver ink based electrodes. Ohmic contact through the antireflection (AR) coating was obtained with pure Ag electrodes at 850°C. We also report on highly conductive silver metallizations and initial results on direct-write TCO demonstrating a 100-micron spatial resolution produced by inkJet printing.
