Establishing reliable and efficient antireflection structures is of crucial importance for realizing high-performance optoelectronic devices such as solar cells. In this study, we provide a design guideline for buried Mie resonator arrays, which is composed of silicon nanostructures atop a silicon substrate and buried by a dielectric film, to attain a(More)
Nanostructured silicon solar cells show great potential for new-generation photovoltaics due to their ability to approach ideal light-trapping. However, the nanofeatured morphology that brings about the optical benefits also introduces new recombination channels, and severe deterioration in the electrical performance even outweighs the gain in optics in(More)
We propose a novel strategy to prepare highly luminescent carbon nanodots (C-dots) by employing a hydrothermal method with citric acid as the carbon source and ethylenediamine as the nitrogen source, together with adding moderate ammonia water (AW) to achieve both appropriate inner structure and excellent N passivation. The effect of pH value and AW amount(More)
We report the realization of both excellent optical and electrical properties of nanostructured multicrystalline silicon solar cells by a simple and industrially compatible technique of surface morphology modification. The nanostructures are prepared by Ag-catalyzed chemical etching and subsequent NaOH treatment with controllable geometrical parameters and(More)
