Designing plasmonic nanoparticles for light trapping applications in solar cells

Beck, Fiona Jean


Optically driven localised surface plasmons can be excited on sub-wavelength metal particles, which can strongly scatter light. These particles have interesting optical properties: the nanoparticle shape and size, and the local dielectric environment determine the wavelength dependent scattering behaviour. If these particles are fabricated on a high-index substrate, a large fraction of light is scattered into the optically dense medium. This can be exploited to couple incident sunlight into...[Show more]
