Abstract

Silicon nanowire (SiNW) arrays were pre metal assisted chemical etching (MAE) method for the ap to solar cells. The SiNW arrays were mechanically peeled the Si substrate to obtain the optical properties of SiNW themselves. The absorptance of the SiNW array with the 10 μm is much higher than theoretical absorptance of 10 flat Si wafer. The angular distribution function (transmittance of SiNW arrays was also measured. It was that the Mie-related scattering plays an important ro strong optical confinement of the SiNW arrays.
