In this work, the effect of Au nanoparticles on the performance of a-Si:H solar cells is investigated experimentally. Au nanoparticles of 10, 20, 50, 80, 100, 200 and 400 nm are spin coated on ITO before metallization. The results show an increase in the Jsc and efficiency with increasing nanoparticle size. The Jsc increases from 9.34 mA/cm2 to 10.1 mA/cm2. In addition, the efficiency increases from 4.28% to 5.01%. © 2013 IEEE.
