FIG. 4.

Current as a function of thickness for cells on two differently rough electrodes (experiment and simulation).

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

EQE and 1 − R curves (experiment, dash and simulation, plain) for a cell on rough and smooth electrodes, for two different intrinsic layer thicknesses: and . The numbers in parenthesis are current densities in . The dotted line is a simulation of the thick cell on the smooth substrate using the experimental scattering parameters () for all passes.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

Simulated EQE curves of a thick cell on a rough electrode (initial EQE), and EQE to expect when going to Lambertian light scattering (Lambertian), suppressing all parasitic absorption (No AP), or using an absorber layer of 100% crystallinity (instead of 60% in other cases). The Yablonovitch limit is also indicated. The numbers in parenthesis are current densities in . was set to zero for all curves.
