We propose a novel design of enhanced light-absorption schemes for thin-film solar cells based on optical Nano-Antennas whose parameter governing the features of localized surface Plasmon's resonance and their effect on photosensitive possessions of the materials. The procedure of our design is based on excitation of collective modes of the optical Nano-Antennas whose electric field is localized between contiguous medium, collective modes is very productive to harness the long range of energy

We demonstrated theoretically substantial enhancement of solar-cell absorption spectral density in the whole spectrum range of the solar-cell operation equated to conventional structures commissioning anti-reflecting coating. We have been used COMSOL Multiphysics environment which is based on numerical finite element method (FEM). This approach is paramount substitute of anti-reflection coating and texturing in thin-film solar cells. Owing to less material usage along with efficient novel broad band light-harvesting structures, thin-film solar cells technically well-suited for large area fabrication techniques.
