Nanotechnology for Photovoltaics

Abstract:
review of the technical literature shows that various classes of nanostructures have been explored for photovoltaics. These are classified as: (a) nanocomposites & nanostructured materials, (b) quantum wells, (c) nanowires & nanotubes, (d) nanoparticles & quantum dots. Each type of nanostructure has been implemented in various schemes and each has advantages and disadvantages. In our work, for example, we have shown that the optical properties of nanowire arrays are significantly better than those of solid thin films (see article published in the Journal of Nanophotonics) and could thus be used in new solar cell configurations. The work is ongoing, and it is very exciting to be involved in this relatively new and growing field. I will give you updates on the progress of our work from time to time.
