Numerical simulations of an InGaN-based solar cell with embedded Ag nanoparticles in the absorption layer show significant efficiency increase through surface plasmon induced absorption enhancement. Carrier transport blocking by the embedded nanoparticles affects little the efficiency. An increase of 19% in maximum output power density is demonstrated.
