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 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. Samples were prepared using a plain(More)
This paper reports on efforts to enhance the photovoltaic performance of textured silicon solar cells through the application of a layer of Eu-doped silicate phosphor with particles of various dimensions using the spin-on film technique. We examined the surface profile and dimensions of the Eu-doped phosphors in the silicate layer using optical microscopy(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)
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)
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.
—A bidirectional wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) transport system base on two reflective semiconductor optical amplifiers (RSOAs) and optoelectronic feedback technique is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. One RSOA is employed as a broadband light source and another RSOA in combination with optoelectronic feedback technique is used as(More)
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)
