High performance hetero-junction solar cells with plasmonic light trapping.

Abstract

This paper attempts to describe the process flows and the optimum deposition parameters for high-performance heterojunction solar cells, and the proposed introduction of plasmonic nanoparticles.

In the investigation, the optimum deposition conditions for the crystalline / amorphous heterojunction will be experimentally determined, and chargecarrier lifetime measurements will be presented. Investigations will then be performed on self-aligned Ag nanoparticles deposited on amorphous silicon, and the optimal particle configuration based on annealing temperature and duration will be identified.
