Light-Management Strategies for Thin-Film Silicon Multijunction Solar Cells

Light management is of crucial importance to reach high efficiencies with thin-film silicon multijunction solar cells. In this contribution, we present light-management strategies that we recently developed. This includes high quality absorber materials, low-refractive index intermediate reflectors, and highly transparent multiscale electrodes. Specifically, we show the fabrication of high-efficiency tandem devices with a certified stabilized efficiency of 12.6%, triple-junction solar cells with a stabilized efficiency of 12.8%, recently developed smoothening intermediate reflector layers based on silicon dioxide nanoparticles, and periodic-on-random multiscale textures.
