Paper Abstract

The metal-semiconductor solar cell is a possible candidate for converting solar to electrical energy for terrestrial application. In this paper, a method for obtaining optical parameters of practical anti-reflection coatings for the metal-semiconductor solar cell, is given. This method utilizes the measured index of refraction obtained from ellipsometry since the surface to be AR coated has a multi-layer structure. Both the experimental results and theoretical calculation of optical parameters for Ta205 anti-reflection coatings on Au-GaAs and Au-GaAs.78P.22 solar cells are presented for comparison.
