Stable, transparent, electrical contacts to silicon using fluorine doped tin oxide as the transparent conductor are described. A thin titanium nitride or titanium oxide film between the silicon and tin oxide prevents interdiffusion and therefore stabilizes the structure, while still retaining good electrical contact and high transparency. All of the films are made by atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition.
