The main two challenges hindering the deployment of solar cells in large scale are the high cost and low efficiency. One of the strategies to reduce the cost is by using thin film materials with enhanced solar cell conversion efficiency. However, thin film materials suffer from weak absorption and the presence of defects, which act as recombination canters for charge carriers. Various studies were conducted to improve absorption in thin film solar cells. However, those approaches are not optimized yet for high efficiency solar cells. In this study, we focus on enhancing light absorption of thin film silicon solar cells by using Zinc Oxide (ZnO) nanostructures.
