Title: Scalable High-Efficiency Thin Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Cells Enabled by Light-Trapping Nanostructures

Abstract

This report summarizes the research activities of the Chen group at MIT over the last two years pertaining to our research effort developing and proving light-trapping designs for ultrathin crystalline silicon solar cells. We present a new world record efficiency for a sub-20-micron crystalline silicon device, as well as details on the combined photonic/electronic transport simulation we developed for photovoltaic applications.
