The goal of this paper is to provide an overview of an in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) technique used to study the thermal stability of various transition metal oxide-based contacts used as carrier-selective contacts in silicon solar cells. In the present work, MoOx/Al and WOx/Al were investigated as hole-selective rear contacts using a combination of in situ TEM and transmission line measurements (TLM).
