Significant photocurrent enhancement has been achieved for evaporated solid-phase-crystallized polycrystalline siliconthin-filmsolar cells on glass, due to light trapping provided by Agnanoparticles located on the rear siliconsurface of the cells. This configuration takes advantage of the high scattering cross-section and coupling efficiency of rear-located particles formed directly on the optically dense silicon layer. We report short-circuit current enhancement of 29% due to Agnanoparticles,...[Show more]
