Diffractive Optics for Thin-Film Silicon Solar Cells by Christian Stefano Schuster

By Christian Stefano Schuster

This thesis introduces a determine of advantage for mild trapping with photonic nanostructures and indicates how varied gentle trapping equipment evaluate, regardless of fabric, absorber thickness or kind of nanostructure. It presents an summary of the fundamental elements of sunshine trapping, delivering an exceptional foundation for destiny designs.
Light trapping with photonic nanostructures is a robust approach to expanding the absorption in skinny movie sunlight cells. Many gentle trapping equipment were studied, yet up to now there was no complete determine of benefit to check those assorted equipment quantitatively. This comparability permits us to set up very important layout ideas for hugely appearing constructions; one such rule is the structuring of the absorber layer from either side, for which the authors introduce a unique and easy layer-transfer procedure. A heavily comparable factor is the query of plasmonic vs. dielectric nanostructures; the authors current an experimental demonstration, aided through a close theoretical review, highlighting the significance of contemplating the multipass nature of sunshine trapping in a skinny movie, that is an important influence that has been missed in past paintings and which permits us to quantify the parasitic losses.
