    Abstract: We have introduced an approach to establish a methodology for 3D optical simulation that allows analyzing optical losses in the individual layers of a thin-film solar cell structure. Using commercial Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) tool, where Maxwell’s Curl equations were rigorously solved for optimizing such cells, a computer modeling has be... Show More
