Large-scale manufacturing of polysilicon-based passivating contacts for high-efficiency crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells demands simple fabrication of thermally stable SiOx films with well controlled microstructure and nanoscale thickness to enable quantum-mechanical tunneling. Here, plasma-dissociated CO2 is investigated to grow in situ thin (
