Back contacts made by Al evaporation and screen printing Al paste for Si solar cells were studied by TEM. Si was found to diffuse into Al during heating. Si diffusion made vacancies in the Si wafer. Al could then penetrate the Si wafer in spiked formations. Al spikes retreated during cooling, leaving a doped region (BSF).
