Comprehensive optimization of spacer layer and dielectric coating for plasmonic solar cell

Plasmonic-enhanced light trapping by silver nanoparticles is a promising way of increasing the light absorption in solar cells and therefore, the cell photocurrent. In this paper, we applied silver nanoparticles on the rear side of polycrystalline silicon thin-film solar cells and numerically investigated interdependent effects of the spacer layer and a… CONTINUE READING
