• Horizontal deposition of polystyrene colloids for enhanced light trapping in solar cells 

        Contributor:Omkamoto, Kento; Wu, Ning; Ma, Fuduo
        Date:2012-08
        Motivations: A majority of solar cells base their materials off of silicon wafers about 180-300 microns in thickness due to it being very cost efficient in the market. However, when the thickness of silicon wafers are ...
      • Scalable nanoparticle arrays for thin-film solar cells
