Volume 11, Issue 9 , September 2020, Pages 1-6

Abstract
  Double perovskite Ba2FeNbO6 (BFN) powders were synthesized by molten salt method. Their optical properties were characterized by UV-Vis absorption spectra, and the band gaps (Eg) were determined to be 2.12 - 2.25 eV. The Eg values were tuned by adjusting the processing parameters ...  Read More

5. Solar Cell Characteristic Studies on Metal Organic Framework/TiO2 Hybrid Solar Cell

K. Deepak; Sampathrao L. Pinjare

Volume 11, Issue 9 , September 2020, Pages 1-5

Abstract
  1,3,5-Triazine-2,4,6-trithiolate (TCA) coordination polymer and TiO2 metal oxide were used to prepare a hybrid solar cell. Electrochemical polymerization of TCA on copper electrode forms CuTCA metal-organic framework (MOF). The CuTCA acts as optically active and hole transport layer whereas TiO2 acts ...  Read More
