Silicon nanocrystals embedded in silicon carbide for tandem solar cell applications

Abstract:

Tandem solar cells are potentially much more efficient than the silicon solar cells that currently dominate the market but require materials with different bandgaps. This thesis presents work on silicon nanocrystals (Si-NC) embedded in silicon carbide (SiC), which are expected to have a higher bandgap than bulk Si due to quantum confinement, with a view to using them in the top cell of a tandem cell.

The strong photoluminescence (PL) of precursor films used to prepare Si-NC in SiC (...
