Light Trapping Concepts for Enhanced Absorption in Thin Silicon Solar Cells

Not Accessible

Abstract

The effect of decoupled front/back textures and the application of photonic and plasmonic nanostructures on the performance of thin silicon solar cells was studied. The study shows that supporting layers of solar cells, such as transparent conductive oxides (TCO), doped layers and back reflectors (BR), are responsible for significant parasitic absorption losses that prevent achieving 4n2 enhancement of light absorption in solar cells with thin silicon absorbers.
