Nicotianamine (NA) is an important divalent metal chelator and the main precursor of phytosiderophores. NA is synthesized from S-adenosylmethionine in a process catalyzed by nicotianamine synthase (NAS). In this study, a set of structural and phylogenetic analyses have been applied to identify the maize NAS genes based on the maize genome sequence release.(More)
The fabrication and properties of CdTe layer are most important to the performance of CdTe thin film solar cells, among their several function layers. In the paper, a technology of closed-space sublimation(CSS) in Ar+O<sub>2</sub> atmosphere has been studied and a method of depositing CdTe thin films on smooth glass substrate has been developed. The(More)
A desert-grown Halimodendron halodendron ethylene-responsive element binding factor gene (HhERF2), which encodes a 245 amino acids protein containing a conserved AP2/EREBP domain, was isolated through the rapid amplification cDNA end (RACE) method. Sequence and phylogenetic analysis indicated that HhERF2 was classified into the B-2 group of ERF subfamily.(More)
ZnTe and ZnTe: Cu polycrystalline films were fabricated by means of co-evaporating at room temperature. The relationships between conductivity of the films and temperature were measured. Chemical compositions of ZnTe and ZnTe: Cu polycrystalline films were obtained by using XPS, and the changes of chemical composition before and after anneal were analyzed.(More)
In order to improve the conversion efficiency of the CdTe solar cells, it is necessary to decrease the thickness of CdS layer. However, the decrease in CdS thickness may lead to adverse effects on the solar cells. Therefore, a high-resistance transparent layer (intrinsic SnO2) has been used as a buffer layer between the transparent conducting oxide (TCO)(More)
CdS(y)Te(1-y) (0 < or = y < or = 1) polycrystalline thin films were prepared on glass substrates by co-evaporation of powders of CdTe and CdS. For the characterization of the structure and composition of the CdS(y)Te(1-y) thin films the X-ray diffraction (XRD) and energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) were used. The results indicate that the values of sulfur(More)
Transmission spectrum of the Cd0.8Zn0.2S thin films prepared by vacuum evaporation, at normal incidence was obtained in the spectral region from 400 to 2000 nm. Based on the use of the maxima and minima of the interference fringes, a straightforward analysis proposed by Swanepoel’s method has been applied to derive the optical constants such as refractive(More)
ZnTe and ZnTe : Cu polycrystalline films were fabricated by means of co-evaporating at room temperature. The sturcture and distribution of various elements were studied by XPS and XRD. The XRD results show that the phase structure of the films deposited at different substrate temperature almost remains unchanged, XPS analysis shows that the compositional(More)
The metal materials with high work function should be used as the back electrode of CdTe solar cells. In the present paper, the back contact performances of CdTe solar cells with Au film and Ni film, respectively, were studied by X-ray photoelectron spectrum (XPS). After exfoliating the back electrode film, it was found that Au on the surface of(More)
Polycrystalline CdTe thin films were prepared by close-spaced sublimation (CCS) and were annealed in different condition. The thin films were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy(XPS). The content distribution and valence state of all elements after annealing were studied. All(More)
