As an effective method of increasing its conversion efficiency, the protective layer of solar cells was patterned with a nano-sized moth-eye structure. This pattern with its conical shape and size serves as an anti-reflective layer. To form a pattern on thermoplastic polymer films and glass plates, the hot-embossing method and nano-imprinting method were used, respectively. Moreover, each substrate patterned on both sides was also fabricated to improve the performance of anti-reflection functionality. Due to the enhanced anti-reflection functionality, the transmittance of patterned films and plates were increased. As a result, a solar cell with patterned polymer films and glass plates as a protective layer exhibited higher quantum efficiency and total conversion efficiency than a solar cell with a bare polymer film and a glass plate as a protective layer.
