Enhanced light trapping in solar cells using snow globe coating.

Basch A, Beck F, Söderström T, Varlamov S, Catchpole KR - Prog Photovolt (2012)

Bottom Line: The coating is formed from high refractive index titania particles without containing binder and gives close to 100% reflectance for wavelengths above 400 nm.Snow globe coating is a physicochemical coating method executable in pH neutral media.The mild conditions of this process make this method applicable to many different types of solar cells.

fig03: External quantum efficiency (EQE) of a plain (solid line), two painted (dotted line) for paint 1 and (dashed line) for paint 2 and a TiO2 coated cell (full line). The coating was performed with particles (about 1 μm) using the SG coating method.

Mentions: The red, solid line in Figure 3 shows the enhancement of the EQE (number of electrons generated per number of incident photons) of a pc-Si thin-film solar cell coated by SG coating compared with two painted cases (blue, dotted line for paint 1 and green, dashed line for paint 2) and a plain (black, solid line) cell. The short circuit current JSC was calculated using Equation 1.
