Description

To compete with fossil fuel electricity generation, there is a need for higher efficiency solar cells to produce renewable energy. Currently, this is the best way to lower generation costs

To compete with fossil fuel electricity generation, there is a need for higher efficiency solar cells to produce renewable energy. Currently, this is the best way to lower generation costs and the price of energy [1]. The goal of this Barrett Honors Thesis is to design an optical coating model that has five or fewer layers (with varying thickness and refractive index, within the above range) and that has the maximum reflectance possible between 950 and 1200 nanometers for normally incident light.
