Enhanced light trapping using plasmonic nanoparticles


Plasmonics is a new light trapping method used in photovoltaic (PV) solar cells. A significant enhancement of the scattered and absorbed incident light due to the use of silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) was observed, which yield to the exaltation of the electromagnetic field in the vicinity of these NPs. In this context, we investigate optically and morphologically the effect of the NPs size dependence on the localized surface plasmon resonance. Extinction, absorption and scattering cross sections are calculated using Mie theory.
