Wave-optical structures have shown amazing possibilities as photonic solutions to improve the performance of photovoltaic technology, allowing the reduction of the devices’ thickness while improving their generated photocurrent, thereby enabling high-efficient, low-cost and mechanically flexible solar cells. Besides, when applied as front coatings in emergent technologies as perovskite solar cells, such structures can also enhance their operational stability.
