Title: Photon management with index-near-zero materials

Abstract

Index-near-zero materials can be used for effective photon management. They help to restrict the angle of acceptance, resulting in greatly enhanced light trapping limit. In addition, these materials also decrease the radiative recombination, leading to enhanced open circuit voltage and energy efficiency in direct bandgap solar cells.
