Resonant enhancement of metal nanoparticle arrays fabricated with nanoimprint lithography

Wang, Er-Chien (Eric); White, Thomas; Soderstorm, Thomas; Varlamov, Sergey; Catchpole, Kylie


Plasmonic effects on metal particles are a promising way of trapping light in solar cells. We experimentally demonstrate enhanced absorptance in thin silicon using metal nanoparticle arrays in conjunction with a rear mirror. The nanoimprint process is a fast and scaleable method for producing nanoscale light trapping structures. Incorporating both nanoparticle arrays and a rear mirror leads to a substantial increase in absorptance, due to resonant interference effects. We numerically simulate...[Show more]
