The effect of dielectric spacer thickness on surface plasmon enhanced solar cells for front and rear side depositions
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]
