Development of Advanced Semiconductor Materials and Devices For Next Generation Photovoltaics: Opportunities And Challenges

Abstract: Renewable energy production is a key component in the drive towards a safe, secure energy supply for future low-carbon economies. Using energy from the sun to generate electricity provides a sustainable source of free, abundant, safe, clean energy, without use of any fossil fuels and without waste or pollution.

Existing ‘three junction’ solar cells, which utilise three different semiconductors, are capable of converting sunlight from three regions of the spectrum into electrical energy. The drawback is that state of the art solar cells currently only convert 33% of solar energy into electricity. There is a great interest worldwide into developing innovative semiconductor materials capable of converting sunlight from a fourth specific portion of the solar spectrum into electrical energy. Retrofitting this fourth generation material onto current solar cells should significantly improve solar cell efficiency to >60%.

Currently a wide range of semiconductors is explored for their potential use in photovoltaic applications. However, solar cells are already an important part of our lives. The simplest systems power many of the small calculators and wristwatches. The complicated systems provide electricity for pumping water, powering communications equipment, and even lighting our homes and running our appliances. With the growth of the satellite industry and the increase of power requirements, larger solar arrays are needed to produce the required power. The familiar wings of most modern satellites are made solar arrays.

In this talk, I will give an overview of the principles of solar cells, the properties of semiconductors suitable for solar cells, and some selected recent achievements in III-V solar cells.

Biodegradable Nanoporous Microspheres by RAFT and UV Irradiation

Abstract:Nanoporous microspheres based on polycaprolactone (PCL), polylactide (PLA) and photodegradable poly(methyl vinyl ketone) (PMVK) were synthesized and characterized. In this study, biodegradable triblock copolymers were first synthesized by ring opening polymerization of lactide followed by RAFT polymerization of methyl vinyl ketone (MVK), and then used to fabricate microsphere by emulsion method. In order to polymerize by RAFT method, macro-CTA (chain transfer agent) was synthesized by reacting carboxylic acid-terminated CTA, S-1-dodecyl-S’-(α,α’-dimethyl-α’’-acetic acid) trithiocarbonate (DDMAT) with hydroxyl terminated PLA-PCL-PLA triblock copolymer, and then used for the synthesis of block copolymer with methyl vinyl ketone (MVK). The synthesized block copolymers were characterized by FT-IR, 1H NMR spectroscopies. Gel permeation chromatography (GPC) was used to evaluate molecular weight and molecular weight distribution and monitor photodegradabilities of block copolymers. The morphology of microparticles before and after UV irradiation confirmed by SEM and TEM images showed that spherical microspheres before UV irradiation were changed to disk-shaped microparticles, owing to collapsing of PMVK moieties by UV irradiation.

EFFECT OF MOLDING PARAMETERS ON THE ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY OF CNTS/GRAPHITE/ EPOXY NANOCOMPOSITES AT HIGH LOADING OF CONDUCTIVE FILLERS

 

ABSTRACT: Effect of filler loading concentration, curing temperature and molding pressure on the electrical conductivity of Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs)/Graphite/Epoxy nanocomposites at high loading of conductive fillers were investigated. Dispersion and incorporation mechanism between two conductive fillers with different sizes (CNTs and Graphite) in the polymer matrix are the key factors in the fabrication of high electrical conductivity plate. Different loading concentration of CNTs (0~5 wt. %) and graphite (40 ~ 80 wt. %) were dispersed in epoxy resin by a high speed mechanical mixer. Plates were than formed by compression molding. The electrical conductivity of the molded plates were measured by the four point probe method. The electrical conductivity measured the significance of variation in loading concentration, curing temperature and molding pressure. Additional of 5 wt.% of CNTs to graphite/epoxy matrix showed tremendous increase of the electrical conductivity of nanocomposites, approximately 200% higher than the graphite/epoxy composite at the same amount of conducting filler loading concentration. The dispersion quality of single filler composite (graphite/epoxy) and hybrid fillers nanocomposites (CNTs/graphite/epoxy) was observed on the fractured surface by scanning electron microscopic. Keywords: Electrical conductivity, carbon nanotubes, graphite, high conductive plate
