Simulations of Silicon Nanowire Arrays for Photovoltaics— More Absorption with Less Silicon

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Using a novel numerical method we calculate the energy absorption of a silicon nanowire array, for photovoltaics. We show that dilute arrays deliver optimal integrated absorption on a per-silicon-volume basis, and identify the enhancement mechanism.
