Pyramidal surface textures for light trapping and antireflection in perovskite-on-silicon tandem solar cells

Schneider, Bennett W; Lal, Niraj; Baker-Finch, Simeon; White, Thomas


Perovskite-on-silicon tandem solar cells show potential to reach > 30% conversion efficiency, but require careful optical control. We introduce here an effective light-management scheme based on the established pyramidal texturing of crystalline silicon cells. Calculations show that conformal deposition of a thin film perovskite solar cell directly onto the textured front surface of a high efficiency silicon cell can yield front surface reflection losses as low as 0.52mA/cm(2). Combining this...[Show more]
