Lumerical’s simulators can predict the performance of new solar cell geometries which incorporate nanophotonic elements like metallic nanoparticles with plasmon resonances tuned to efficiently scatter the light into the absorbing layer, or nanotextured surface anti-reflection coatings to reduce undesirable back reflections that degrade cell performance.
