Thermochromic properties of VO2 nano-coatings by inverted cylindrical magnetron sputtering
(University of the Western Cape, 2012)
Vanadium dioxide (VO2) films have been known as the most feasible thermochromic nano-coatings for smart windows which self control the solar radiation and heat transfer for energy saving and comfort in houses and automotives. ...
Optical properties of annealed hydrogenated amorphous silicon nitride (a-SiNx:H) thin films for photovoltaic application
Technological advancement has created a market for large area electronics such as solar cells and thin film transistors (TFT’s). Such devices now play an important role in modern society. Various types of conducting, ...
Synthesis and characterization of silver nanoparticles for photovoltaic application
With an increase in the amount of harmful carbon emissions in the atmosphere as well as a decrease in the availability of fossil fuels, there is a relatively high demand for alternate energy devices. Solar cells have become ...
Metal assisted chemically etched silicon nanowires for application in a hybrid solar cell
(University of the Western Cape, 2018)
Photovoltaic (PV) devices based on inorganic-organic hybrid active layers have been extensively studied for over a decade now. However, photoactive hybrid layers of material combinations such as rr-P3HT and SiNWs still ...
