The direct utilization of sunlight is a critical energy source in a sustainable future. One of the options is to convert the solar energy into electricity using thin-film silicon-based solar cells (TFSSCs). Solar cells in a triple-junction configuration have exhibited the highest energy conversion efficiencies within the thin-film silicon...

Thesis about the charge carrier dynamics in PbSe and PbS semiconductor nanocrystals. The main goal of the research is to assess their potential as new materials for high-efficiency solar cells. The nanocrystals under investigation consist of PbSe quantum dots (Ch 2), PbSe nanorods (Ch 3 & 4) and PbS nanosheets (Ch 6), and the spectroscopic...

It has been predicted that due to the population growth the energy demand is increasing faster and faster. It has been well recognized that depleting fossil-fuel resources will not fulfill the energy need of the future world. Not to mention the problem of global warming caused by its combustion, and of energy security as a result of geopolitical...

Long term concerns about climate change and fossil fuel depletion will require a transition towards energy systems powered by solar radiation or other renewable sources. Novel concepts based on silicon materials and devices are investigated for applications in the next generation photovoltaic (PV) devices and photoelectrochemical (PEC) water...

Petrus, M.L. (author)
Solution processable organic photovoltaics (OPVs) are attracting much attention because of their anticipated advantages such as low cost, flexibility, lightweight, and the potential to be produced on a large scale. The photoactive layer of OPVs consists of a blend of an electron donating and an electron accepting material. Over the last 20 years...

This thesis explores some fundamental aspects of charge carrier transport at the nanoscale. The study is divided in two parts. In the first part, the structural, dynamical and vibrational properties of discotic liquid crystals are studied in relation to the potential of these self-assembled ‘mesophases’ to form molecular conducting wires....

Solar energy can fulfil mankind’s energy needs and secure a more balanced distribution of primary sources of energy. Wafer-based and thin-film silicon solar cells dominate todays’ photovoltaic market because silicon is a non-toxic and abundant material and high conversion efficiencies are achieved with silicon-based solar cells. To stay...

Space charges in two heterojunctions (i.e., TiO2/CuInS2 and TiO2/QD-CdSe) are studied by means of impedance spectroscopy and capacitance studies. Several lattice defects are found. When applied in solar cells, the defects may have a negative effect on the efficiency. Therefore, it is important to know the nature of the defects. In this thesis a...

Solar cells are the prime power supply for satellites in space. Space is, however, a hostile environment for electronic devices, such as solar cells: in space the devices are subjected to large temperature cycles, atomic oxygen, space dust, meteorites, and high-energy charged-particle irradiation. In this thesis we present the development of a...
