Scalable nanoparticle arrays for thin-film solar cells

Phoebe Yeoh, Fuduo Ma & Ning Wu
Thin film solar cells use less material than conventional solar cells, making them a viable option for cheaper solar electricity. Unfortunately, their thinness also hinders them from trapping and absorbing longer light wavelengths, making them less efficient. Monolayered, non-close packed nanoparticle arrays placed within the cell help to scatter longer wavelengths within the cell and allows them to be absorbed. One method for creating these arrays is called Monolayered Self-assembly at Liquid-liquid Interfaces (SALI). A...
