In this paper, we study the light coupling into a Si substrate by depositing Al nanoparticles on the surface using FDTD calculations and compared with the most commonly used Ag nanoparticles. It has been found that Al nanoparticle has the potential to improved light in coupling integrated over AM1.5G solar spectral range and can have much better enhancement… CONTINUE READING
