In this paper, a finite-difference time-domain method is adopted to investigate the light scattering properties of core (metal)-shell (dielectric) nanoparticles, with varying shell thickness and refractive index. Adding a shell coating can shift the resonance to above the solar material bandgap when compared with a bare nanoparticle that has resonance outside of the useful solar radiation. The front-located core–shell metal-dielectric nanoparticles on thin Si substrates demonstrate enhanced...[Show more]
