Solar cells with photonic and plasmonic structures

Research output: Chapter


The research on solar cells based on photonic, plasmonic and various nanostructured materials has been increasing in the recent years. A wide range of nanomaterial approaches are applied from photonic crystals to plasmonics, to trap light and enhance the absorption as well as the efficiency of solar cells. The first part of this chapter presents examples on applications that utilize nanostructured materials for photovoltaics. In the second part, ellipsometry related metrology issues are discussed briefly, dividing the topic in two major parts: effective medium and scatterometry approaches.
