30 August 2010 Fundamental limit of nanophotonic light-trapping in solar cells
Author Affiliations +
We use a rigorous electromagnetic approach to develop a light-trapping theory, which reveals that the conventional limit can be substantially surpassed in nanophotonic regimes, opening new avenues for highly efficient solar cells.
