    Abstract: In this work a theoretical study on the behavior of the macroscopic physical parameters of the solar cell according to the texture of the front outer surface is conducted. The morphology of the texture of surface can vary according to the angle formed by the edges of the pyramidal structure and according to the depth. The studied macroscopic electr... Show More
