CFN Research Activities

My research activities are focused on the fabrication and electrical characterization of nanostructured devices. Currently, I am fabricating metal hole arrays (MHAs) with sub-wavelength hole sizes that show the enhanced optical transmission effect, and I am incorporating them as semi-transparent electrodes in organic solar cells based on a P3HT-PCBM blend. When the enhanced transmission peaks of the MHA are matched to the blend absorption range, we observe an increased light absorption in this region. Preliminary measurements show a significant increase in the short circuit current under illumination for the MHA-based solar cell with respect to a similar control device, which has the MHA-electrode replaced by a conventional indium-tin oxide contact.
