R8.02 - Nanostructures for High Efficient Photovoltaic Solar Cells and Flexible Transparent Electrode 
April 24, 2014   2:00pm - 2:30pm

Photovoltaic technology converting solar energy into electricity is playing more and more important roles in providing the society with clean energy and reducing the impact of burning fossil fuels on environment. How to increase the photovoltaic conversion efficiency has been studied very intensively during the past couple of decades. In this talk, I will present our effort using nanostructures to improve the conversion efficiency by both designing new structures and inventing new transparent electrode, specifically I will discuss our development on nano coaxial cable solar cells to separate the photon and charge path ways, ultra thin film solar cells for efficient light absorption, and super flexible transparent electrode for efficient collection of charges.
