Photonic quasicrystal nanopatterned silicon thin film for photovoltaic applications

Ren, H.; Du, Q. G.; Ren, F.; PNG, C. E.


In this paper, the authors numerically studied the optical properties of a silicon photonic quasicrystal (PQC) nanohole array for photovoltaic applications. With the same active layer thickness, the ultimate efficiency of a solar cell integrated with an optimized PQC nanohole array can be enhanced by 9.01% and 1.40% compared to that with an ordered square lattice of a nanohole array and a random nanohole array, respectively. The absorptance enhancement is mainly due to the higher-order...[Show more]
