Simulation of absorptivity, reflectivity and transmissivity of a random distribution of Ag nano-particle on glass

We consider a random distribution of silver (Ag) nanoparticles on glass. Such a film can be used as a transparent conductive layer in a thin-film PV. Goal of the simulation is to study scattering behavior and parasitic absorption in such a mesh.

A periodic array of supercell is simulated. Ag nanoparticles are of cubicle shape of size . In this simulation we consider a particle density of 0.6 particles per square meter area. So there are total 15 particles in the simulated supercell.

Software Used


REMS is a frequency domain wave optics simulator. REMS solves Maxwell equations in frequency domain for both space and time variables. REMS is a heavily multi-threaded, stable and efficient implementation various formulations of Rigorous Coupled Wave Analysis (RCWA), Fourier Modal Method (FMM), and the S-matrix algorithm.
