Colored oils and aqueous solutions have been electromechanically pumped in and out of arrayed microwells. The microwells comprised pyramidal pits in Si substrates that were coated with an aluminum electrode and a hydrophobic dielectric. These substrates were then suspended between volumes of water and oil. When colored oil was placed behind the substrate,(More)
Formation of a selective emitter in crystalline silicon solar cells improves photovoltaic conversion efficiency by decoupling emitter regions for light absorption (moderately doped) and metallization (degenerately doped). However, use of a selective emitter in silicon nanowire (Si NW) solar cells is technologically challenging because of difficulties in(More)
A thin-film solar cell with dual photonic crystals has been proposed, which shows an advanced light-trapping effect and superior performance in ultimate conversion efficiency (UCE). The shapes of nanocones have been optimized and discussed in detail by self-definition. The optimized shape of nanocone arrays (NCs) is a parabolic shape with a nearly linearly(More)
In microwave and terahertz frequency band, a textured metal surface can support spoof surface plasmon polaritons (SSPPs). In this paper, we explore a SSPPs waveguide composed of a metal block with pyramidal grooves. Under the deep subwavelength condition, theoretical formulas for calculation of dispersion relations are derived based on the modal expansion(More)
