The excitation of surface plasmons on metallic nanoparticles has the potential to significantly improve the performance of solar cells, in particular thin-film structures. In this article, we investigate the effect of the dielectric spacer layer thickness on the photocurrent enhancement of 2 μm thick, thin-film poly-Si on glass solar cells, due to random arrays of self-assembled Ag nanoparticlesdeposited on the front or the rear of the cells. We report a strong asymmetry in the external quantum...[Show more]
