Metallic nanoparticles (NPs) exhibit a localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) and act as scattering centers and subwavelength antennas, so metallic NPs can be incorporated into perovskite solar cells (PSCs) to effectively improve the light absorption of light harvesting devices. Here, we have embedded Au nanoparticles (NPs) into the hole transport layer(More)
Over the past decade, mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) smaller than 200 nm with a high colloidal stability have been extensively studied for systemic drug delivery. Although small molecule delivery via MSNs has been successful, the encapsulation of large therapeutic biomolecules, such as proteins or DNA, is limited due to small pore size of the(More)
Plasmonic effects that arise from embedding metallic nanoparticles (NPs) in polymer solar cells (PSCs) have been extensively studied. Many researchers have utilized metallic NPs in PSCs by either incorporating them into the PSC interlayers (e.g., the hole extraction and electron extraction layers) or blending them into the bulk heterojunction (BHJ) active(More)
