Solar cells based on organometallic halide perovskite absorber layers are emerging as a high-performance photovoltaic technology. Using highly sensitive photothermal deflection and photocurrent spectroscopy, we measure the absorption spectrum of CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite thin films at room temperature. We find a high absorption coefficient with particularly(More)
Micro-Raman spectroscopy provides laterally resolved microstructural information for a broad range of materials. In this Letter, we apply this technique to tri-iodide (CH3NH3PbI3), tribromide (CH3NH3PbBr3), and mixed iodide-bromide (CH3NH3PbI3-xBrx) organic-inorganic halide perovskite thin films and discuss necessary conditions to obtain reliable data. We(More)
Tandem solar cells constructed from a crystalline silicon (c-Si) bottom cell and a low-cost top cell offer a promising way to ensure long-term price reductions of photovoltaic modules. We present a four-terminal tandem solar cell consisting of a methyl ammonium lead triiodide (CH3NH3PbI3) top cell and a c-Si heterojunction bottom cell. The CH3NH3PbI3 top(More)
In this work, we considered the feasibility of Raman spectroscopy for discriminating between adenocarcinomatous and normal mucosal formalin-fixed colonic tissues. Unlike earlier studies in colorectal cancer, a spectral deconvolution model was implemented to derive spectral information. Eleven samples of human colon were used, and 55 spectra were analyzed.(More)
High-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) nanodiamonds originate from grinding of diamond micro-crystals obtained by HPHT synthesis. Here we report on a simple two-step approach to obtain as small as 1.1 nm HPHT nanodiamonds of excellent purity and crystallinity, which are among the smallest artificially prepared nanodiamonds ever shown and characterized.(More)
Diamond-based materials possess many unique properties, one of them being a broad-band visible photoluminescence due to a variety of color centers. However, a high material refractive index makes the extraction of photoluminescence (PL) from a diamond layer inefficient. In this paper, we show that by periodical nanopatterning of the film's surface into a(More)
In this paper we present a comparison of three different methods that can be used for estimating the stiffness of qPlus sensors. The first method is based on continuum theory of elasticity. The second (Cleveland's method) uses the change in the eigenfrequency that is induced by the loading of small masses. Finally, the stiffness is obtained by analysis of(More)
Field-enhanced metal-induced solid phase crystallization (FE-MISPC) of amorphous silicon is scaled down to nanoscale dimensions by using a sharp conductive tip in atomic force microscopy (AFM) as one of the electrodes. The room temperature process is driven by the electrical current of the order of 100 pA between the tip and the bottom nickel electrode.(More)
The rapid thermal direct deposition of micro-crystalline silicon (µc-Si) layers by atmospheric pressure chemical vapour deposition (APCVD) can be done on different intermediate layers and on various substrates. The deposition is done at temperatures between 850 °C and 1150 °C. A deposition rate of 1.6 µm/min has been achieved using standard process(More)
Silicon nanowires and nanoneedles show promise for many device applications in nanoelectronics and nanophotonics, but the remaining challenge is to grow them at low temperatures on low-cost materials. Here we present plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition of crystalline/amorphous Si nanoneedles on glass at temperatures as low as 250 °C. High resolution(More)
