Photon management is a key component in the development of efficient solar cells. Especially light-trapping concepts have a high potential to realize enhanced efficiencies. Here, we give an overview over several light trapping concepts for photon management in solar cells. These include basic as well as advanced light-trapping concepts. The theoretical limits of light path enhancement of the different concepts are given and experimental work on these topics is presented. The potential of 3D photonic crystals is discussed in the context of the corresponding approaches as well.
