Textile forms of solar cells possess special advantages over other types of solar cells, including their light weight, high flexibility, and mechanical robustness. Recent demand for wearable devices has promoted interest in the development of high-efficiency textile-based solar cells for energy suppliers. However, the weaving process occurs under(More)
Increasing demands for wearable energy sources and highly flexible, lightweight photovoltaic devices have stimulated the development of textile-structured solar cells. However, the former approach of wire-type solar cell fabrication, followed by weaving of these devices, has had limited success, due to device failure caused by high friction forces and(More)
Crystal splitting and enhanced photocatalytic activities caused by implied dislocations were observed in hierarchical TiO(2) nano-architectures prepared by one-pot hydrothermal synthesis in concentrated HCl. Microstructural observation revealed that the nanowires formed by continuous splitting of TiO(2) nano-belts, which is caused by a lattice(More)
A reduced graphene oxide (RGO)-based transparent electronic memory cell with multi-level resistive switching (RS) was successfully realized by a dip-coating method. Using ITO/RGO/ITO structures, the memory device exhibited a transmittance above 80% (including the substrate) in the visible region and multi-level RS behavior in the 00, 01, 10, and 11 states(More)
The improved resistive switching (RS) performance characteristics of nickel nitride (NiN) films-based crossbar array (CBA) memory resistors-such as reduction in the operating voltages, reset current and current/voltage variations; no initial forming process; and set/reset speeds--are demonstrated using nanopyramid-patterned (NPP) platinum-bottom electrodes.(More)
The size-dependent resistive switching (RS) properties of the active region in a 1 x 1 NiN-based crossbar array (CBA) resistive random access memory (ReRAM) are investigated in the range of 2 x 2 μm2 to 8 x 8 μm2. In the forming test, the forming voltage is reduced by decreasing the cell size of the active region. Compared to the 8 x 8 μm2 CBA ReRAM, the(More)
Textile-structured solar cells are frequently discussed in the literature due to their prospective applications in wearable devices and in building integrated solar cells that utilize their flexibility, mechanical robustness, and aesthetic appearance, but the current approaches for textile-based solar cells-including the preparation of fibre-type solar(More)
