DOI: 10.1002/adma.201004393 Dr. J. Grandidier , D. M. Callahan , Dr. J. N. Munday , Prof. H. A. Atwater Thomas J. Watson Laboratories of Applied Physics California Institute of Technology Pasadena, CA 91125, USA E-mail: For thin-fi lm solar cells, light absorption is usually proportional to the fi lm thickness. However, if freely propagating sunlight can be transformed into a guided mode, [ 1 ] the optical path length signifi cantly increases and results in enhanced light… CONTINUE READING
