Strain-Enhanced Plasmonic Solar Cells

These researchers are investigating strain effect on plasmonic solar cells. They are evaluating the effect of mechanical strain on the optical absorption and scattering efficiency of the plasmonic solar cell structure. The structure consists of layers of semiconductor and metal materials. The analysis of this structure is carried out using COMSOL software.
