Paper Abstract

The application of submicron grating structure for light trapping in thin silicon solar cells has been investigated theoretically and experimentally. A gain in absorption corresponding to an increase in thickness of more than a factor of 4 for polarized light and about 3 for unpolarized light has been demonstrated.
