The purpose of this study is to reduce the glass substrate reflectivity over a wide spectral range (400-1200nm) without having high reflectivity in the near-infrared region. After making porous SiO2/MgF2 double-layer antireflection (DLAR) thin film structure, the superstrate-type silicon-based tandem cells are added. In comparison to having only siliconbased tandem solar cells, the short-circuit current density has improved by 6.82% when porous SiO2/MgF2 DLAR thin film is applied to silicon-based tandem solar cells. This study has demonstrated that porous SiO2/MgF2 DLAR thin film structure provides antireflection properties over a broad spectral range (400-1200nm) without having high reflectivity at nearinfrared wavelengths.
