Silicon heterojunction solar cell with passivated hole selective MoOx contact
We explore substoichiometric molybdenum trioxide (MoOx, x < 3) as a dopant-free, hole-selective contact for silicon solar cells. Using an intrinsic hydrogenated amorphous silicon passivation layerExpand

Measurement of the bending strength of vapor-liquid-solid grown silicon nanowires.
The fracture strength of silicon nanowires grown on a [111] silicon substrate by the vapor-liquid-solid process was measured. The nanowires, with diameters between 100 and 200 nm and a typical lengthExpand
