Abstract - In this paper, we will be shown that two-dimensional simulations absorption of visible light by the silicon layer with nanostructured metallic arrays on it will be increased. Excitation of surface plasmons enhances electromagnetic field in metallic nanostructures. This enhancement will raise the absorption of the silicon layer beneath the nanostructure.The use of metallic nanostructures helped to increase light absorption the silicon solar cells. For simulations, finite difference time domain method is used. The simulation results show an increase of 86% percent in light absorption by the silicon in the presence of metallic nanostructure.
Keywords: Keywords: Plasmonic, Enhanced absorption, Solar‌‌ cell, Silicon, metallic nanostructures.
