In this study a single anti-reflective layer like a double anti-reflective coating of silicon nitride (SiNx) and oxide of silicon (SiOx) will be presented. The object of this study and the optimization of the antireflective coatings on the solar cells with silicon, it was noted that the minimal reflection losses are obtained on the double anti-reflective coating of SiOx/SiNx with refractive index n2=2.08 and n1=1.45 studied on 600 nm respectively. The effect of the thickness and the refractive index will be also studied. The optimization procedures and the various results will be presented.
