In order to reduce the solar cell price, the active layer thickness has been decreased, but this reduces the absorption of light, especially at high wavelengths. One of the ways to increase the absorption and efficiency of solar cells is to use metal nanoparticles and to benefit from the effect of surface plasmon resonance. In this paper, we have tried to increase the absorption and efficiency of the solar cell by placing the silver nanoparticles on zinc oxide (ZnO) layer in a solar cell with an activate layer of amorphous silicon (a-Si). Also, compared to rectangular, triangular and semi-cylindrical arrays, it is shown that silver nanoparticles will increase the efficiency further. Finally, the basic parameters of the proposed solar cell are examined.
Keywords: Thin film solar cell, Metallic nanoparticle, Localized surface plasmon resonance, Efficiency
