The creation of a suitable inorganic colloidal nanocrystal ink for use in a scalable coating process is a key step in the development of low-cost solar cells. Here, we present a facile solution synthesis of chalcopyrite CuInSe 2 nanocrystals and demonstrate that inks based on these nanocrystals can be used to create simple solar cells, with our first cells(More)
The substitutional doping approach has been shown to be an effective strategy to improve ZT of Bi₂Te₃-based thermoelectric raw materials. We herein report the Fe-doping effects on electronic and thermal transport properties of polycrystalline bulks of p-type Bi0.48Sb1.52Te₃. After a small amount of Fe-doping on Bi/Sb-sites, the power factor could be(More)
An unusual anisotropic growth of Cu(2)O is stabilized via the electrochemical synthesis of Cu(2)O in the presence of Ag(+) ions, which results in the formation of Cu(2)O electrodes composed of 2D sheetlike crystals containing complex dendritic patterns. It is quite unusual for Cu(2)O to form a 2D morphology since it has a 3D isotropic cubic crystal(More)
Metallic glass (MG) assists electrical contact of screen-printed silver electrodes and leads to comparable electrode performance to that of electroplated electrodes. For high electrode performance, MG needs to be infiltrated into nanometer-scale cavities between Ag particles and reacts with them. Here, we show that the MG in the supercooled state can fill(More)
Morphological variation of the Ag nanoparticles embedded in a lyotropic phospholipid (1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine, DOPE) membrane during hydration was investigated. Hydration at 5 °C resulted in transformation of the Ag nanoparticles into a bundle of Ag nanostrings as the Ag nanoparticles conformed to the H(II) phase of the DOPE molecules.(More)
The mechanical strength of an Al-30% Si alloy in the mushy zone was estimated by using a novel centrifugation apparatus. In the apparatus, the alloy melt was partially solidified, forming a porous structure made of primary Si platelets (Si foam) while cooling. Subsequently, pressure generated by centrifugal force pushed the liquid phase out of the foam. The(More)
1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine lipid bilayer with a thin layer of water molecules inserted in the hydrophobic region was simulated at 300K to observe the pore structure formation during escape of the water molecules from the hydrophobic region. The transformation of the water slab into a cylindrical droplet in the hydrophobic region, which locally(More)
