Spectrally selective AlXOY/Pt/AlXOY solar absorber coatings for high temprature solar-thermal applications
(University of Western Cape, 2014)
The limited supply of fossil hydrocarbon resources and the negative impact of CO2 emission on the global environment dictate the increasing usage of renewable energy sources. Concentrating solar power (CSP) systems are the ...
TiO2 nanotube based dye- sensitised solar cells
(University of Western Cape, 2012)
This work investigated the synthesis of Al2O3-coated TiO2 nanotubes via the anodisation technique for application in DSCs. TiO2 nanotube arrays with an average length of 15 μm, diameter of 50 nm and wall thickness of 15 ...
Structure property relationship and thermal stability of organic photovoltaic cells
(University of the Western Cape, 2010)
In this thesis, regioregularpoly( 3-hexylthiophene) (rr-P3HT) polymer was used as a light absorption and electron donating material, while the C60 fullerene and its derivative [6,6]-phenyl C61-butyric acid methyl ester ...
