An elastomeric poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) block engraved with periodically arrayed nanopillars serves as a transferable light-trapping stamp for encapsulated organic thin-film solar cells. Diffracted light rays from the stamp interfere with one another and self-focus onto the active layer of the solar cell, generating enhanced absorption, as indicated in the current density-voltage measurements.
