In order to enhance infrared light absorption in sub-bandgap transitions in an intermediate band solar cell, the scattered near-field potential from uncoated and coated metallic nanoparticles with a spheroidal shape is calculated with the electrostatic model. The absorption enhancement produced at the surface plasmon frequency of the nanoparticles can be of several orders of magnitude in some cases.
