(a) Schematic illustration of metal/silicon nanobowl arrays (MSNBs); (b) two-dimensional side view of MSNBs; (c) MSNBs covered by SiO2 passivation layer and hemisphere Ag back reflection layer (MSNBsH); (d) cross-sectional view of MSNBsH. Light is incident on the top of the structure along the direction.
