Performances of textured crystalline-silicon (c-Si) solar cells enhanced by silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) and indium nanoparticles (In-NPs) plasmonic effects are experimentally demonstrated and compared. Plasmonic nanoparticles integrated into textured c-Si solar cells can further increase the absorption and enhance the short-circuit current density (J sc)(More)
In this study, we demonstrate the photovoltaic performance enhancement of a p-n junction silicon solar cell using a transparent-antireflective ITO/oxide film deposited on the spacing of the front-side finger electrodes and with a DC voltage applied on the ITO-electrode. The depletion width of the p-n junction under the ITO-electrode was induced and extended(More)
This study demonstrates the efficacy of combining a matrix of silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) with indium nanoparticles (In-NPs) to improve the electric and optical performance of plasmonic silicon solar cells. We examined the excitation of localized surface plasmons of Ag-NPs and In-NPs using surface enhanced Raman scattering measurements. Optical(More)
A 20-Gbps optical light-based WiFi (LiFi) transport system employing vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) and external light injection technique with 16-quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM)-orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) modulating signal is proposed. Good bit error rate (BER) performance and clear constellation map are(More)
The optical generation rate and surface recombination velocity (SRV) increasing with the created nano-holes depth, width, and number on the emitter layer of a thin-film silicon solar cell are studied. The trade-off between the optical generation rate and surface recombination velocity was exhibit in short-circuit current density (J<sub>sc</sub>),(More)
A novel cost-effective radio-over-fiber (ROF)/fiber-to-the-X (FTTX)/CATV hybrid three-band transport system based on direct modulation of a distributed feedback laser diode (DFB LD) with multi-wavelength output characteristic is proposed and experimentally demonstrated.

SUMMARY A radio-on-dense-wavelength-division-multiplexing (DWDM) transport system based on injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser diodes (FP LDs) with four microwave carriers and large effective area fiber (LEAF) transmission was proposed and demonstrated. Good performance of bit error rate (BER) and intermodulation distortion to carrier ratio (IMD/C) over a-50(More)
This paper reports impressive improvements in the optical and electrical performance of metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS)-structure silicon solar cells through the incorporation of plasmonic indium nanoparticles (In-NPs) and an indium-tin-oxide (ITO) electrode with periodic holes (perforations) under applied bias voltage.

This study characterized the plasmonic scattering effects of indium nanoparticles (In NPs) on the front surface and silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) on the rear surface of a thin silicon solar cell according to external quantum efficiency (EQE) and photovoltaic current-voltage. The EQE response indicates that, at wavelengths of 300 to 800 nm, the ratio of the(More)
