Abstract

The light trapping effect of a textured polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) film on the suppression of surface reflection in a-Si:H solar cell is investigated. The angular dependence of scattered light from this PDMS film was measured and a symmetric scattering intensity peak was found at +/-20°. The enhancement of power conversion efficiency in the a-Si:H solar cell with textured PDMS film can reach 16.37% compared to the a-Si:H solar cells without textured PDMS film. This improvement is mainly attributed to the enhanced efficiencies of light trapping and scattering. Such a design concept and fabrication process can be widely adapted to a variety of thin film solar cells.
