Incorporation of plasmonic nanostructures for light trapping is an attractive solution to enhance the optical absorption of the active light-harvesting layer(s) in thin-film photovoltaic cells. The latest research highlights on plasmonic-enhanced organic photovoltaics (OPVs), including metallic nanoparticles and periodic nanopatterned structures, are presented in this paper. © 2012 IEEE.
