2. Increasing the efficiency of graphene-based Schottky-barrier devices

Shuo-En Wu; Ya-Ping Hsieh

Volume 10, Issue 2 , February 2019, , Pages 132-135

  Graphene’s high carrier mobility and ambipolar nature has the potential to improve electronic devices. The absence of a band-gap necessitates heterostructure devices. Schottky-barrier devices consisting of an interface between graphene and a semiconductor represent the simplest heterostructure. ...  Read More

3. Enhancing absorption in thin film organometal trihalide perovskite solar cell by photon recycling

Abhinav Bhatnagar; Vijay Janyani

Volume 9, Issue 10 , October 2018, , Pages 721-726

  Over the past few years thin film planar heterojunctions solar cells have made much progress as a low cost with high power conversion efficiency photovoltaic devices. Among the materials used in fabricating such solar cells organometal trihalide perovskite (MAPbI3) has proven to be a promising absorber ...  Read More

Volume 8, Issue 7 , July 2017, , Pages 813-818

  The synthesis and characterization of two novel 3-thienyl based polythiophene derivatives PT and BT have been presented. These polymers have been synthesized by convenient and ecofriendly Pd catalyzed direct arylation polymerization method. In these polymers the alkyl side chain has been replaced by ...  Read More

7. La-doped CH3NH3BaI3: A promising transparent conductor

Jiban Kangsabanik; Aftab Alam

Volume 8, Issue 4 , April 2017, , Pages 342-345

  Hybrid perovskites (CH3NH3PbI3) is one of the most promising novel materials for solar harvesting. Toxicity of lead (Pb), however, has always remained a concern. We investigated the electronic structure of complete replacement of Pb by alkaline earths (Ca, Sr, Ba) and found them to be wide band gap (Eg) ...  Read More

8. Influence Of Thickness Of Active Layer On The Performance Of CBD Grown Cu-CdS/PbS Hetero-junction

Volume 8, Issue 1 , January 2017, , Pages 65-69

  Solar cells with the structure ITO-Cu-CdS/PbS-Ag were fabricated by heat-induced Chemical Bath Deposition (CBD) technique. Cu-doped CdS/PVA nanocomposite thin film of thickness 260 nm was used as the window layer. The PbS absorber layer of different thickness (528.3 -1250.8 nm) for different molar concentration ...  Read More

9. Effect Of Diffusion Parameters On The Efficiency Of C-Si Solar Cell

Vineet Kumar Singh; Jampana Nagaraju

Volume 6, Issue 7 , July 2015, , Pages 600-606

  This paper presents the effect of emitter thickness and post-annealing process on the conversion efficiency of crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells. Diffusion parameters like pre-deposition temperature, drive-in temperature, and process duration assist to control the emitter thickness and inturn improves ...  Read More
