Abstract

In this contribution, we report our recent results on broadband nanophotonic light management in thin-film silicon solar cells. A systematic experimental study on the impact of disorder in nanophotonic light management concepts of thin-film solar cells will be presented. We show that disorder is conceptually an advantage for nanophotonic light-trapping concepts employing grating coupler in thin-film solar cells. This conclusion holds for a broad range of angles of incidence.
