Light Trapping Principles and Limits for Photovoltaics

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Light trapping is an important design criterion for efficient solar cells. I discuss the fundamental light trapping limits for thick and thin films and show how to beat the bulk limit using specially designed thin films.
