Abstract :

The article proposes a hybrid nanostructure that comprises nanopyramids and nanoholes for thin film silicon (Si) solar cells. The hybrid structure displays a stronger light trapping ability that is beyond the Lambertian limit. This strong light trapping ability is achieved with the smaller dimension nanohole structure which effectively reduces shorter wavelength light reflection, and the larger dimension nanopyramid structure which significantly enhances longer wavelength light trapping.
