The next generation of satellites will need to tackle tomorrow's challenges for communication, navigation and observation. In order to do so, it is expected that the amount of satellites in orbit will keep increasing, form smart constellations and miniaturize individual satellites to make access to space cost effective. To enable this next...

Emerging PV technologies like Perovskite has lead to the development of Perovskite/Silicon (Pvk/c-Si) tandem device (Multi-junction device) and has now gained a lot of momentum and attention due to the fact that the tandem device can reach a Shockley-Quisser limit of about 44.1% efficiency. But to speed up its development, a lot of emphasis is...

The wide bandgap of silicon carbide (SiC) has attracted a large interest over the past years in many research fields, such as power electronics, high operation temperature circuits, harsh environmental sensing, and more. To facilitate research on complex integrated SiC circuits, ensure reproducibility, and cut down cost, the availability of a...

In this paper, we present a quadrant sun position sensor microsystem device in a silicon carbide technology that operates in a field-of-view of ±33° and reaches a mean error of 1.9° in this range. This will allow, for the first time, an inherently visible blind sun position sensor in a CMOS compatible technology. Opto-electronic integration of...

Individual actions cannot solve the current climate crisis. Part of the collective effort is to research solar energy as new ways to produce cleaner, cheaper and more efficient electricity. Among all the current solar cell technologies, a thriving and promising one is perovskite as an absorber material. In the last ten years, the power...

Accurately sensing the temperature in silicon carbide (power) devices is of great importance to their reliable operation. Here, temperature sensors by resistive and CMOS structures are fabricated and characterized in an open silicon carbide CMOS technology. Over a range of 25-200°C, doped design layers have negative temperature coefficients of...

Exploiting the information provided by electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) requires reliable access to the low-loss region where the zero-loss peak (ZLP) often overwhelms the contributions associated to inelastic scatterings off the specimen. Here we deploy machine learning techniques developed in particle physics to realise a model...

Since the discovery of the photovoltaic properties of metal halide perovskites in 2009, the material has rapidly gained interest in the scientific community. In less than 10 years, the power conversion efficiency of perovskite solar cells (PSC) has increased from 3.9% to over 25%, reaching levels of conventional silicon cells. PSCs have multiple...

Nowadays many applications require optical detection of some sorts, ranging from civil to military fields. Depending on the optical source, each sensing element needs to have distinct properties with the spectral range at the top. Choices such as sensitivity and environment play an equally important role, if not more important. The properties of...

An interdigitated back-contacted (IBC) configuration is proposed for submicron copper indium gallium (di)selenide (CIGS). In a modelling platform, the structure was opto-electrically optimized for maximum efficiency. The results are compared with a reference front/back-contacted (FBC) solar cell with similar absorber thickness and exhibiting...

In this thesis, graded bandgap energy a-SiO<sub>x</sub>:H solar cells are developed to attain a high JSC without compromising their high <i>V<sub>OC</sub> </i>× FF product. First, a grading method which takes into account the interdependence of bandgap energy, deposition rate and the desired grading profile for a-SiO<sub>x</sub>:H materials is...

Solar cells are showing significant promise to become the solution for the growing energy needs of our world. However for this to happen, new disruptive technologies with high efficiency and low cost are needed in the market. One possibility comes from multijunction thin film solar cells based on a-Si alloys and nc-Si. For this purpose a–SiO<sub...

In the previous decade, Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 (kesterite) compounds have attracted the interest of several research groups across the world. Their efforts have improved this technology from 5 % power conversion efficiency in 2004 to above 13 % in 2017 (communicated but not published) [1]. This thesis begins with an assessment of the current status of...

In the ongoing search for (new) highly efficient and cheap photovoltaic materials, orthorhombic barium disilicide has sparked recent interest. Studies have shown that BaSi2 exhibits good electrical properties, a bandgap of 1.3 eV and a high absorption coefficient. However, these studies have mainly been performed on molecular beam epitaxially...

We report the etching of and electronic transport in nanoribbons of graphene sandwiched between atomically flat hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN). The etching of ribbons of varying width was achieved with a focused beam of 30 keV He<sup>+</sup> ions. Using in-situ electrical measurements, we established a critical dose of 7000 ions nm<sup>−2<...

This paper presents an integrated shunt-based current-sensing system (CSS) capable of handling ±36-A currents, the highest ever reported. It also achieves a 0.3% gain error and a 400-μA offset, which is significantly better than the state-of-the-art systems. The heart of the system is a robust 260-μ Ω shunt resistor made from the lead frame...

This paper presents an integrated current-sensing system (CSS) that is intended for the use in battery-powered devices. It consists of a 10 mΩ on-chip metal shunt resistor, a switched-capacitor (SC) ΔΣ ADC, and a dynamic bandgap reference (BGR) that provides the ADC's reference voltage and also senses the shunt's temperature. The CSS is realized...
