Abstract
For highly efficient solar cell, it is necessary to understand all the light loss in the solar cell and develop broadband light harvesting. This thesis reports a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) film composed of random sized inverted pyramidal structure (RSIPS) fabricated by simple and cheap process that displays excellent optical properties. The RSIPS-PDMS film shows high optical haze which increase the light scattering and low reflection because of a linear grading of the effective refractive index profile from the air to glass or silicon layer. By applying the RSIPS-PDMS on Si solar cell, the current density and efficiency was improved (i.e., 35.9mA/cm^2, 16%) compared to those of reference device (i.e., 33.1mA/cm^2, 14.9%). Also, a polymer solar cell (PSC) with RSIPS-PDMS film has improved current density and efficiency. The RSIPS-PDMS film is suitable for an antireflection film of diverse solar cells.
