The effect of nano-Ag (n-Ag) plasmonic layer in InP/CdS solar cell structure was examined. An enhancement of short circuit current improving the overall cell efficiency was observed in InP/n-Ag/CdS cells. Location of the plasmonic layer in the above cell structure has been analyzed critically. The effect of introducing plasmonic layer on the overall performance of the cell has been studied in terms of the morphology, particle size distribution, optical absorption, I-V, C-V characteristics, and lifetime of the photo-generated carriers. Secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS) studies were carried out for investigating possible interface alloying.
