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 (Jsc)(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 characterized the electrical and optical properties of single-junction GaAs solar cells coated with antireflective layers of silicon dioxide (SiO₂), indium tin oxide (ITO), and a hybrid layer of SiO₂/ITO applied using Radio frequency (RF) sputtering. The conductivity and transparency of the ITO film were characterized prior to application on GaAs(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)
This paper demonstrates the application of a broadband luminescent downshifting (LDS) layer with multiple species of europium (Eu)-doped silicate phosphors using spin-on film technique to enhance the photovoltaic efficiency of crystalline silicon solar cells. The surface morphology of the deposited layer was examined using a scanning electron microscope(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)
In this article, we describe the fabrication of a monolithically integrated 1 12 array of GaInAs/InP planar photodiodes, which has highly uniform characteristics in dark current, capacitance and crosstalk capacitance, quantum efficiency, and the frequency bandwidth at 3-dB reduction with a deviation of 1%. Besides, each diode on the array exhibits an(More)
In this article, we report the growth and characterization of InAsP/InP strained single quantum well (SSQW), strained single quantum well (SSQW) stack, and strained multiple quantum well (SMQW) structures on (1 0 0)-oriented InP substrates grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. Double-crystal X-ray di!raction, photoluminescence (PL) and(More)
We report high-efficiency single-junction GaAs Solar cells of 25.54% at one sun using a spin-on graded-index TiO<inf>2</inf>/SiO<inf>2</inf> films. Improved in efficiency, from 19.19% to 25.54%, was obtained when cell without/with proposed graded-index TiO<inf>2</inf>/SiO<inf>2</inf> AR-coating, respectively.
In this study, we sought to improve the light trapping of textured silicon solar cells using the plasmonic light scattering of indium nanoparticles (In NPs) of various dimensions. The light trapping modes of textured-silicon surfaces with and without In NPs were investigated at an angle of incidence (AOI) ranging from 0° to 75°. The optical reflectance,(More)
