TiO₂ nanotube based dye-sensitised solar cells
(University of the Western Cape, 2012)
The first report of a functioning photo-electrochemical solar cell in 1991 attracted a lot of interest from scientists and industrial groups. From an industrial point of view these so-called dye-sensitised solar cells ...
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 ...
Application of vertically aligned arrays of metal-oxide nanowires in heterojunction photovoltaics
(University of the Western Cape, 2020)
The commercial need to improve the performance of low-cost organic solar cells has led to the idea for this research. The study discusses the synthesis of one dimensional TiO2 and ZnO nanowire arrays synthesised using a ...
