Development of New Optical Management Technology for Solar Cells based on Photonic Nanostructures

Research Project Outline

In this project, we aim to develop a new optical management technology for solar cells based on photonic nanostructures (or photonic crystals). We will investigate broad-area resonant effects at band-edges of photonic crystals in order to enhance the absorption at the wavelength regime (600-1,000nm) where the magnitude of the absorption in thin film silicon (such as a-Si or micro-crystalline Si) reduces significantly.
