Abstract

We describe a method based on nanoimprinting and non-absorbing insulating silicon nitride electrodes for evaluating the light trapping potential of photonic nanostructures for thin-film silicon solar cells. We validate our method by relating the optical reflectance of the full solar cell stack to the external quantum efficiency of functional cells. Our method provides a useful experimental tool to compare different nanostructures circumventing complications arising from parasitic absorption and electrical cell performance. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
