Absorption Enhancement Using Dielectric Gratings for Thin Film Solar Cells

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We investigate how a dielectric grating positioned on top of a thin absorber can enhance the absorption of the photovoltaic cell. We observe absorption peaks from electric field enhancement within the absorber due to Fabry-Perot resonances.
