Check ’em out: Ultrafast large-amplitude relocation of electronic charge in ionic crystals (pdf) (PNAS, Early Edition) We have demonstrated an ultrafast relocation of charge that is induced by electronic excitation and steered by coherent low-frequency motions of the ionic crystal lattice. Our results reveal the nonequilibrium charge dynamics in ionic materials on their intrinsic length…

Japanese group ‘prints’ amorphous silicon photovoltaic cell created using silicon inks

By / February 16, 2011

JAIST researchers have developed three types of silicon ink:  aB-doped p-type, an i-type (intrinsic) and a P-doped type.Credit T. Shimoda; JAIST. Typically, photovoltaic units composed of thin-film silicon materials do not involve amorphous or single-crystalline silicon, and making thin-films with poly-silicon is still a frontier field (see previous post). But researchers at the Japan Advanced…

Nanohole arrays show superiority in solar cells

By / May 10, 2010

Scientists have developed a silicon solar cell with a geometry of holes with diameters of about 500-600 nanometers, according to a recent  post on Physorg.com. The new design achieves an increased power efficiency of 9.5 percent, compared to the 5 percent efficiency of silicon cells that use optically active nanostructures such as nanowires and nanotubes.…
