Theory predicts that periodic photonic nanostructures should outperform their random counterparts in trapping light in solar cells. However, the current certified world-record conversion efficiency for amorphous silicon thin-film solar cells, which strongly rely on light trapping, was achieved on the random pyramidal morphology of transparent zinc oxide(More)
The possible role of bacteria in the etiology of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) was studied by bacteriological and biochemical analyses of nasopharyngeal swabs collected in the cavum and in the fossa of Rosenmüller of NPC patients and healthy controls in France and Algeria. Counts of total bacteria and of total nitrate-reducing bacteria, mainly(More)
CCD and CMOS imaging technologies can be applied to thin tissue Autoradiography as potential imaging alternatives to using conventional film. In this work, we compare two particular devices; a CCD operating in slow scan mode and a CMOS-based Active Pixel sensor, operating at near video rates. Both imaging sensors have been operated at room temperature with(More)
High aspect-ratio three-dimensional (3D) a-Si:H solar cells have been fabricated to enhance a light absorption path while maintaining a short carrier collection length. Substantial efficiency enhancement in 3D solar cells was achieved due to the boost in JSC with no degradation of FF which is comparable to FF obtained from 2D solar cells.
In Thin Film Silicon (TF-Si) solar cells light harvesting schemes must guarantee an efficient light trapping in the thin absorber layers without decreasing the silicon layers quality and consecutively the p-i-n diodes electrical performance. TF-Si solar cells resilience to the substrate roughness is reported to be possibly improved through optimizations of(More)
