Absorption enhancement of an amorphous Si solar cell through localized surface plasmon-induced scattering with metal nanoparticles

Abstract

Absorption enhancement of an amorphous Si solar cell is numerically demonstrated by placing metal nanoparticles on the device top, including periodical and non-periodical distributions, to induce localized surface plasmon for effectively generating forward scattering.
