Plasmonic nanostructures can be used to enhance absorption in a variety of solar cells, including c-Si, a-Si:H, GaAs, and various organic devices. This review discusses the variety of geometries for plasmonic nanostructure incorporation, including top structures, back-contact structures, and embedded structures. The article focuses on the reduction in cell thickness achievable via coupling to waveguide modes, and on the potential for enhanced absorption in other material systems.
