Abstract: Solar cells are known as reproducible, carbon-free electric energy resource to reduce the utilization of fossil fuel. Recently, around 40% energy conversion yield have been gained in laboratories using III-V semiconductor compounds as photovoltaic materials. One of the efforts and accomplishments done for higher efficiency III-V semiconductor compound solar cells with metallic plasmonstructures is declared, in this study Technological strategies for further performance improvement from the mostefficient (Al) In GaP/(In) GaAs/Ge triple-junction cells considering 1.0 eV band gap semiconductors are discussed. By adding metallic plasmonnano structures, we couldretouch photonic energy flow directions to increase sunlight absorption in thin photovoltaic semiconductor materials.
