By Christian Stefano Schuster

This thesis introduces a determine of benefit for mild trapping with photonic nanostructures and indicates how diversified gentle trapping tools examine, without reference to fabric, absorber thickness or form of nanostructure. It presents an outline of the fundamental facets of sunshine trapping, supplying an excellent foundation for destiny designs.
Light trapping with photonic nanostructures is a robust approach to expanding the absorption in skinny movie sun cells. Many mild trapping tools were studied, yet so far there was no finished determine of benefit to check those various tools quantitatively. This comparability permits us to set up vital layout ideas for hugely acting buildings; one such rule is the structuring of the absorber layer from each side, for which the authors introduce a unique and straightforward layer-transfer procedure. A heavily comparable factor is the query of plasmonic vs. dielectric nanostructures; the authors current an experimental demonstration, aided via an in depth theoretical evaluation, highlighting the significance of contemplating the multipass nature of sunshine trapping in a skinny movie, that is an important impression that has been ignored in past paintings and which permits us to quantify the parasitic losses.
