The angular resolved light scattering at textured back contacts for n-i-p thin-film silicon solar cells is investigated experimentally in air. These results are compared to simulations performed by a scalar model for reflection with excellent agreement. Furthermore, light scattering is modeled for the transmission and reflection inside the silicon solar cell. It is found that the reflection at the back contact dominates the light scattering in the absorber layer. From these simulations, a quantity is derived that successfully predicts the external quantum efficiencies of solar cells on different textures.
