The Sun, believed by the mankind to be just a mere centerpiece of the solar system in which we live is in reality not just a unit but an entire symphonic system which was in place much before the first humans ever walked on planet earth. This system which has been the primary energy source for origin of life on earth is in fact very well adequately positioned by nature to fulfill the needs of energy for humans for many more centuries to come.

The promising field of plasmonics has yielded methods for guiding and localizing light at the nanoscale. Now plasmonics researchers are turning their attention to photovoltaics, where design approaches based on plasmonics can be used to improve absorption in photovoltaic devices, permitting a considerable reduction in the physical thickness of solar photovoltaic absorber layers, and yielding new options for solar cell design.

Due to a combination of the resonant plasmonic properties of metallic nanoparticles with thin-film photovoltaic technology, a new generation of plasmonic solar cell has evolved with similar performance to silicon cells but at potentially a fraction of the cost.

Today, plasmonic solar cells are emerging READ MORE >
