      Shabat, Mohammed M.; El-Samak, Nadara S; Schaadt, Daniel M; Authority, Palestinian (2018)
      We theoretically investigate the effects of Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) as an absorbing material in a complex waveguide structure model. Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method is used to discretize the Maxwell’s curl ...
    • Metamaterial-Silicon Anti-reflection Waveguide Model for Solar Cells

      Hamouche, Houria; Shabat, Mohammed M.; Schaadt, Daniel M (Optical Society of America, 2016)
      Transfer matrix method was applied to analyze the optical properties of a metamaterial antireflection coating structure for silicon solar cells for several angles of incidence. The numerical results highlighted an enhancement ...
    • Multilayer solar cell waveguide structures containing metamaterials

      Hamouche, Houria; Shabat, Mohammed M.; Schaadt, Daniel M (Academic Press, 2017)
      Multilayer antireflection coating structures made from silicon and metamaterials are designed and investigated using the Transfer Matrix Method (TMM). The Transfer Matrix Method is a very useful algorithm for the analysis ...
