Plasmon-enhanced polymer-sensitized solar cellS Were manufactured by incorpotatirig core-hell Au@SiO2 particles into the TiO2 phoroanode. The plasmon-enhaneed solar cells showed an improved performance due to an increasedjs, leading to a:higher Power conversion, efficiency compared to refereneezlevices without Au@SiO2 particles, and a small increase in The Voc was also observed. The incident photon to current efficiency (IPCE) spectra showed that an enhanced absorption in the plasmon devices was the cause of the improved performance. By electrodynamics, modeling of the Au@SiO2 particles, we conclude that a,combination of scattering and neat-field enhancement is the cause of the increased effidericy in these plasinon-enhanced solar cells.
