Isotextured silicon solar cell analysis and modeling 1: Optics

Baker-Finch, Simeon; McIntosh, Keith; Terry, Mason L


A comprehensive investigation reveals three useful approximations to the optical behavior of isotextured silicon solar cells. First, we confirm experimentally that front-surface reflectance is accurately modeled with spherical cap geometry. Second, we find that light reflected from the surface has a Lambertian distribution. Random upright pyramid texturing results in a less favorable distribution so that, when encapsulated, photogeneration in an isotextured cell approaches 99% of that achieved...[Show more]
