Abstract

Layers that enhance light scattering and Raman-scattering-based spectral modification for solar cell applications were investigated. Titanium-oxide based rear diffuse reflector were found to increase the long wavelength response of crystalline solar cells. Also particle within the Titanium-oxide produce a far greater Stokes and anti-Stokes shift when compared to bulk crystal counterparts. The anti-Stokes to Stokes shift ratio in these particle systems is also greater and increased with increasing probe or bias light intensity. When applied to solar cells these layers extend the red response and thereby increase the overall performance.
