Christian Stefano Schuster's Diffractive Optics for Thin-Film Silicon Solar Cells PDF

By Christian Stefano Schuster

This thesis introduces a determine of benefit for gentle trapping with photonic nanostructures and indicates how diverse gentle trapping tools evaluate, regardless of fabric, absorber thickness or form of nanostructure. It presents an outline of the fundamental features of sunshine trapping, providing an exceptional foundation for destiny designs.
Light trapping with photonic nanostructures is a strong approach to expanding the absorption in skinny movie sunlight cells. Many mild trapping tools were studied, yet thus far there was no accomplished determine of benefit to match those diverse equipment quantitatively. This comparability permits us to set up vital layout ideas for hugely acting constructions; one such rule is the structuring of the absorber layer from each side, for which the authors introduce a unique and easy layer-transfer strategy. A heavily comparable factor is the query of plasmonic vs. dielectric nanostructures; the authors current an experimental demonstration, aided by way of an in depth theoretical review, highlighting the significance of contemplating the multipass nature of sunshine trapping in a skinny movie, that is a vital impact that has been overlooked in prior paintings and which permits us to quantify the parasitic losses.
