Plasmonic near-field enhancement for planar ultra-thin absorber solar cells

Wang, Zhu; White, Thomas; Catchpole, Kylie

Description

We propose a planar ultra-thin absorber concept exploiting plasmonic resonance absorption enhancement. We calculate >13-fold enhancement in a 7.5 nm thin-film absorber yielding a maximum absorption of 74.4%. Broadband and wide-angle absorption is demonstrated.
