Metal nanoparticles are used to enhance absorption due to plasmonic effects. By the change of size in nanodimensions the resonance frequency changes too. These metal nanoparticles are fabricated on Si and glass substrate to enable solar cells to absorb different wavelengths. Through the project of GUNAM a PhD student is studying on this subject. In the next step of this study metal nanoparticles will be applied to thin film solar cells. Nanoparticles which are growth by Prof. Dr. Rasit Turan and Urcan Guler can be seen on photograph.
