FIG. 1.

(Color online) Sketch of the thin-film a-Si:H solar cell with silver nanoparticles deposited on top of ITO layer. The inset illustrates the simulated area with nine randomly distributed nanoparticles and periodic boundary conditions, labeled as PBC.

FIG. 2.

(Color online) Mean value and standard deviation of the enhancement G obtained for spherical nanoparticles placed in the square lattice, as functions of the size spreading σR . The randomized nanoparticle radii Rj obey the normal distribution with the standard deviation σRR 0. The statistics plotted is obtained in five consecutive simulations for every value of σR .

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

(Color online) Mean value and standard deviation of the enhancement G obtained for spheroidal nanoparticles placed in the square lattice, as functions of the aspect ratio spread σH . The randomized nanoparticle aspect ratios Hj /R 0 obey the normal distribution with the standard deviation σH . The statistics plotted is obtained in five consecutive simulations for every value of σH .

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

(Color online) Mean value and standard deviation of the enhancement G obtained for identical spherical nanoparticles randomly distributed over the cell surface, as functions of σs . The randomized displacements of the nanoparticles from their respective positions in the square lattice obey the normal distribution with the standard deviation σsd 0 and is uniform over the angle θ. The statistics plotted is obtained in five consecutive simulations for every value of σs .
