Abstract :

Design guidelines for slanting silicon nanowire (SiNW) arrays for solar cell application are provided in this article by simulating the reflectance and absorption characteristics of slanting SiNWs structure. The analysis of the effect of the structural periodicity (P) and wire diameter/periodicity (D/P) ratio on the optical characteristics of the slanting SiNW suggests that the light absorption is significantly enhanced for the slanting SiNW structure compared with vertical SiNW structure because of the much suppressed light reflection and stronger light trapping ability.
