Abstract: Antireflection coatings on glass are highly desirable, since glasses are widely used as a packaging material in the solar industry due to their transparency and durability. In this report, we propose a novel anodizing method using grid line contacts for antireflective nanostructures on a large area glass substrate. The nanoholes on the glass substrate exhibit broadband and omnidirectional antireflective properties, leading to an 11.34% improvement in the short-circuit current and enhanced power conversion efficiency from 7.9% to 8.57%. Moreover, the enhanced optical properties persist for 3 months in an outdoor environment. The proposed anodizing method can be considered as an alternative technique for the fabrication of large area nanostructures. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
