WP2 will provide the design guidelines for the optimization of photonically enhanced thin-film solar cells. To this aim, a full physics-based simulator, coupling the optical and electrical models of the device, will be developed. Specific objectives are:
- electrical models and simulations of solar cells;
- optical models and simulations of nanophotonic structures and light-trapping mechanism;
- self-consistent optical and electrical model and simulations of thin film cells.
