Screen-printed metal contact formation through a carbon containing antireflection coating was investigated for silicon solar cells by fabricating carbon-free SiNx and carbon-rich SiCxNy film. SiCxNy-coated solar cells showed less degradation under lower illumination (<1000 W/m2) compared with the SiNx-coated cells due to reduced fill factor degradation under low illumination. Theoretical calculations support that this is a direct result of high shunt resistance. Detailed photovoltaic system and cost modeling is performed to quantify the enhanced energy production and the reduced levelized cost of electricity.
