We report on the improvement of conversion efficiency of InGaN photovoltaic (PV) cells with inverted textured surface (ITS). InGaN PV cells with ITS showed short-circuit current density and conversion efficiency of 0.63 mA/cm2 and 1.01%, which are 68.17% and 73.33% higher than the characteristics of conventional InGaN PV cells, respectively. The improvement can be attributed to the reduction of both the shading effect of the electrode contact pad and surface reflection of the incident irradiation under one-sun air-mass 1.5-G illumination (100 mW/cm2).
