Design of Efficient Hybrid Plasmonic and Phononic Solar Cells
The rapid increase in green house gases has led to the total imbalance in the current climatic conditions. The use
of non-sustainable energy and the increasing threats in the emissions of these fuels has motivated us to come up with
efficient solar cell without using conventional photovoltaics or silicon cells. This paper is proposing the idea about
implementation of both phononic interactions and plasmonic interactions phenomena in a single hybrid solar cell. Initially
we have outlined a development of solar cells deviating from traditional technology. We have then explained about the
incorporation of plasmonic and phononic interaction principles and then we have mentioned about few design architectures
that can be adapted. The unique high solar spectrum factor of our proposed solar cells has been explained. Qualitative
analysis for the high efficiency of this solar cell has been mentioned. Finally the application part of these kind of hybrid solar
cells have been justified.
