FIG. 1.

(Left) The top view of the periodic nanoparticle arrangement. D is the diameter and P is the spacing between NPs. A unit cell (boxed) is used in computation. (Right) The side view of the simulation domain. ITO thickness is 140 nm, PEDOT:PSS thickness is 50 nm, and cathode is 100 nm.

FIG. 2.

The E/E0 distributions of x-polarized (left) and y-polarized (right) incident light. Due to spherical symmetry of the nanoparticle, the E/E0 distributions in the two cases are similar. The incident light was at a wavelength of 600 nm. The nanoparticles, of 40 nm in diameter, were placed in the center of the active layer of 100 nm thickness.

FIG. 3.

The absorption enhancement ratio as a function of NP spacing. The active layer thickness is 100 nm. The diamonds are results for absorption calculation including both the host and the NP, while the squares are results obtained when only the host region is considered. Particle diameter is 40 nm.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

The absorption enhancement ratio as a function of active layer thickness with different NP sizes. The NP spacing is 120 nm. The optimum thickness of the active layer increases as the NP size increases. Particle diameter is 40 nm.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

The absorption enhancement ratio as a function of NP spacing. The active layer thickness is 100 nm. Particle diameter is 40 nm.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

Mie theory predictions (triangles) for single particle and finite element modeling (squares) for the absorption enhancement profile of multiple NPs with spacing of 120 nm at wavelength of 600 nm. R is the distance from the NP surface and a is NP radius. The nanoparticles are placed in the middle of the active layer. The active layer thickness is 100 nm. Particle diameter is 40 nm.

Image of FIG. 7.
FIG. 7.

The absorption enhancement ratio as a function of active layer thickness. The NP spacing in the case of NP in the middle and of NP at the bottom is 120 nm and 60 nm, respectively. Particle diameter is 40 nm.
