Three-dimensional nanotub submicrometer diffraction gratings for solar cells

Ho, Cyrus; McKeon, Josephine; Macdonald, Daniel; Catchpole, Kylie R


Diffraction gratings are a promising approach for reducing reflection and achieving light-trapping in solar cells. Using square lattices as a base structure, we investigate a novel bi-periodic nanotub three-dimensional grating structure and compare it with established textured structures for thin-film and wafer applications. For wafer application, simulations show that optimal AR coated nanotubs demonstrated solar weighted reflectance (SWR) of 2% compared to AR coated square pyramids with...[Show more]
