This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured "metal-black" coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical… More
