Diffuse reflectors for improving light management in solar cells: a review and outlook

Barugkin, Chog; Beck, Fiona; Catchpole, Kylie R


Pigment based diffuse reflectors (DRs) have several advantages over metal reflectors such as good stability, high reflectivity, and low parasitic absorption. As such, DRs have the potential to be applied on high efficiency silicon solar cells and further increase the power conversion efficiency. In this paper, we perform a thorough review on the notable achievements to date of DRs’ application for photovoltaics. We outline unique attributes of these technologies and discuss the theoretical...[Show more]
