The fabrication method of plasmonic nanodots on ITO or nc-ZnO substrate has been developed to improve the efficiency of organic thin film solar cells. Nanoscale metallic nanodots arrays are fabricated by anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) template mask which can have different structural parameters by varying anodization conditions. In this paper, the structural parameters of metallic nanodots, which can be controlled by the diverse structures of AAO template mask, are investigated to enhance the optical properties of organic thin film solar cells. It is found that optical properties of the organic thin film solar cells are improved by finding optimization values of the structural parameters of the metallic nanodot array.
