An inexpensive and easily manufacturable silver nanowire network electrode (NNE) is demonstrated. The NNE is formed from nanoparticles by sintering of the nanoparticles that occupy the valleys between pyramids of the textured silicon surface. The results show that NNE combined with an anti-reflection coating is almost as efficient in suppressing the reflection as the coating alone, but with the added benefit of high conductivity.
