Fabrication of site specific amorphous/nanocrystalline silicon composite thin film for solar cells

The absorption properties of amorphous silicon (α-Si) and the electron transport properties of nanocrystalline silicon are combined in a novel composite material for thin film silicon solar cells. In this work a composite film composed of α-Si with site specific areas of nanocrystalline material was created. Al was deposited through a SiO2 template… (More)
