Optimizing binary profiles for metallic solar cell back-plane reflectors — •Jan Marc Stockschläder and Erich Runge — Institut für Physik and Thüringer Landesgraduiertenschule für Photovoltaik PhotoGrad, Technische Universität Ilmenau, 98693 Ilmenau

Coupling light to the active medium of a solar cell is a crucial point for high efficiency. Structured substrates have been proposed to scatter light more efficiently into the absorber. Thin geometries are particularly attractive because they have the potential for low-cost fabrication. In acoustics, so-called Galois scatterer are often used because they scatter equally into every available scattering order[1]. However for solar cells, it matters whether scattering orders correspond to long or short path ways in the absorber. Taking this into account, we present a simple criterion as a basis for educated guesses for the absorption enhancement of a particular scattering profile. We compare the results of FDTD simulations and our heuristic estimate for Galois scatters and numerous structures of the same period length.
