Show all documents When placed in contact, some of the electrons in the n - type portion flow into the p- type to "fill in" the missing electrons, also known as electron holes. Eventually enough electrons will flow across the boundary to equalize the Fermi levels of the two materials. In silicon, this transfer of electrons produces a potential barrier of about 0.
When placed in the sun, photons of the sunlight can excite electrons on the p- type side of the semiconductor , a process known as photoexcitation. In silicon, sunlight can provide enough energy to push an electron out of the lower-energy valence band into the higher-energy conduction band. As the name implies, electrons in the conduction band are free to move about the silicon. When a load is placed across the cell as a whole, these electrons will flow out of the p- type side into the n - type side, lose energy while moving through the external circuit, and then flow back into the p- type material where they can once again re-combine with the valence-band hole they left behind.
In this way, sunlight creates an electric current. In any semiconductor , the band gap means that only photons with that amount of energy, or more, will contribute to producing a current. In the case of silicon, the majority of visible light from red to violet has sufficient energy to make this happen. Unfortunately higher energy photons, those at the blue and violet end of the spectrum, have more than enough energy to cross the band gap; although some of this extra energy is transferred into the electrons, the majority of it is wasted as heat.
Another issue is that in order to have a reasonable chance of capturing a photon, the n - type layer has to be fairly thick. This also increases the chance that a freshly ejected electron will meet up with a previously created hole in the material before reaching the p- n junction. A N - type semiconductor and a P- type semiconductor are connected into a thermocouple to form a PN junction. There will be an exchange of energy. However, there are various forms of energy conversion, and the absorption and emission of heat are one of its aspects.
So there will be a heat transfer between the two ends, and the heat will be transferred from one end to the other, resulting in a temperature difference to form a hot and cold end. This semiconductor has several favorable properties, including good transparency, high electron mobility, wide bandgap, and strong room- temperature luminescence. Those properties are used in emerging applications for transparent electrodes in liquid crystal displays, in energy-saving or heat-protecting windows, and in electronics as thin-film transistors and light-emitting diodes.
Zinc oxide is an important n - type semiconductor with a direct band gap of 3. Zinc oxide nanoparticles are widely used in various applications such as optical devices, catalysis, light emitting diodes, photo detectors, solar cells and gas sensors.
Zinc is an essential nutrient in humans and animals for many physiological functions, including immune and antioxidant function, growth, Skeleton development, skin growth, appetite, wound healing and reproduction. Zinc oxide ZnO , a safe source for Zn supplementation and it is commonly used to fortify foodstuff in the food industry.
ZnO will decompose into Zn ions after consumption. A variety of methods have been used for the synthesis of zinc oxide nanoparticles such as direct precipitation, homogeneous precipitation, solvothermal method , sonochemical method, reverse micelles, sol gel method , hydrothermal, thermal decomposition, and microwave irradiation.
The design of new hyperbranched array materials for the photoanode allowed them to reach a conversion efficiency of 9. The next step by creating well- organized nanostructures for the n - type semiconductor was the design of three-dimensional hyperbranched titania architecture as efficient multistack photoanode.
This array was constructed via layer-by-layer assembly of hyper- branched hierarchical tree-like titania nanowires under- layer , branched hierarchical rambutan-like titania hollow submicrometer-sized spheres intermediate layer , and hyperbranched hierarchical urchin-like titania micrometer- sized spheres top layer.
Hyperbranched arrays exhibit a substantially enlarged surface area, for which a twofold in- crease of the dye-loading capacity is possible. The DSSC solar cell constructed with this hyperbranched architecture showed a power conversion efficiency of Abstract: The fabrication and characterisation of photo-anodes based on black-Si b-Si is presented for Si, titania will absorb UV portion of incident light, while silicon will absorb longer wavelengths.
In the case of a n - type photoanode immersed into electrolyte solution under illumination white light , photogenerated holes should be drifting to semiconductor -electrolyte interface to participate in the oxidation of solution species water molecules , whereas photoelectrons should be driven to the electrode bulk and towards counter electrode to take part in the reduction reaction. Due to upward band bending at the hetrojunction between the two n - type semiconductors, an energy barrier is formed for the transport of photo-generated electrons from the conduction band of TiO 2 to that of Si Fig.
Electronic properties of the Zr-ZrO2-SiO2-Si gate stack structure In this study in situ deposition and photoemission spec- troscopy have been employed to characterize a potential metal oxide n - type semiconductor gate stack in a stepwise manner, determining the valence band offsets, vacuum lev- els, internal fields, and changes in band bending after each deposition step. The results from this sequential growth and characterization technique allow us to calculate, for each in- terface, the deviation of the electronic barrier heights as de- termined from the alignment of the material vacuum levels.
This deviation, or change of the interface dipole, is thought to result from charge transfer across the interface. Photoelectrolysis Using Type II Semiconductor Heterojunctions Type -II systems have band alignments such that one carrier is confined, while the other is free to roam in the bulk material.
Consider the placement of hole-confining quantum dots QDs at the SEI: Upon illumination, excitons are generated near the surface of the semiconductor and soon split up by the built-in electric field.
For an n - type semiconductor , electrons flow to the counter electrode, while holes travel toward the QDs at the SEI. If the QDs offer a suitable confining potential, holes may become trapped. This excess of positive charges at the SEI will raise energy levels at the interface but not in the bulk semiconductor , thus increasing the band bending and countering the effect that the flow of carriers has in flattening the bands. Thermoelectric Figure of Merit of a Material Consisting of Particles in Dependency on the Parameters of a Material Consider the thermoelectric properties of the material, consisting of a large number of identical spherical metal particles with a n-type semiconductor thin film on the surface thereof..
Theoretically, the Schottky barrier height is only determined by the work function of the metal and the electron affinity of the n - type semiconductor. For a p- type semiconductor , the higher the work function of the metal, the easier it is to form an ohmic contact. While for an n - type semiconductor , the lower the work function of the metal, the easier it is to form an ohmic contact.
Copper is used as top metal contact for p- type cuprous oxide, while aluminum is used as top metal contact for n - type cuprous oxide. A front wall Schottky barrier solar cell Olsen et al. A new method of obtaining has been reported Iwanoski et al. This technique uses hydrogen ion bombardment of surface thus reducing the top surface to copper. Schottky barrier solar cells can also be fabricated in the back wall structure. This mode requires a natural junction using copper or any other material as the base and depositing a layer of on top of the metal base.
The light then illuminates the junction through the semiconductor side. But back wall cells require thin layer of because of the high absorption coefficient and low diffusion length of the minority carriers Trivich et al. Partial thermal oxidation can be used to produce the thin layer. Back wall solar cells of offer greater advantage over front wall cells because of the mechanical stability of the base materials and simplicity of fabrication.
Material properties of n type silicon and n type UMG solar cells As discussed previously, using cheaper feedstock exclusive for PV industries can also reduce the costs and avoid large price fluctuations due to the imbalance between supply and demand in the market.
The Siemens process is the conventional process to produce very pure silicon feedstock via gas phase distillation called EG-Si. At this low selling price, EG-Si manufacturers make little profit that could feed future investments to expand their production capacity. Therefore, the EG-Si market is likely to experience a shortage in supply leading to further price hikes to allow further investments and expansions.
This price fluctuation is of minor impact on the semiconductor industry, since Si feedstock only accounts for a very small portion of the cost of integrated circuits. Thus, volatility in the feedstock price can potentially limit the reductions in module costs and in the long term has a negative impact for PV to become more competitive with conventional energy resources.
Advantage of Photovoltaic Power Generation Thin-film solar cells are manufactured by applying thin layers of semiconductor materials to a solid backing material. The composition of a typical thin-film cell is shown in Figure 2. Sunlight entering the intrinsic layer generates free electrons.
The p- type and n - type layers create an electric field across the intrinsic layer. The electric field drives the free electrons into the ntype layer while positive charges collect in the p- type layer. The total thickness of the p- type , intrinsic, and n - type layers is about one micron.
Although less efficient than single- and polycrystal silicon, thin-film solar cells offer greater promise for large-scale power generation because of ease of mass-production and lower materials cost. Thin-film is also suitable for building-integrated systems because the semiconductor films may be applied to building materials such as glass, roofing, and siding . Understanding doping anomalies in degenerate p type semiconductor LaCuOSe The behaviour of both intrinsic and extrinsic defects in LaCuOSe has been investigated using hybrid density functional theory.
The importance of correctly analysing the thermody- namic stability of the material of interest with respect to other competing phases has been demonstrated. Our results clearly show that under p- type growth conditions V Cu will dominate,.

In this dispersion regime, the optical fibre will support bright solitons. For high input peak powers, the pulse will propagate as a higher-order soliton. These solitons are not spectrally and temporally invariant, but instead follow a periodic evolution as they propagate along the fibre.
Figure 2. It is apparent that the pulse undergoes a narrowing at the beginning of each period. This is a general feature of all higher order solitons, the pulse shortening increasing for greater soliton numbers. By selecting an optical fibre so that its length corresponds to maximum pulse narrowing, for the given input pulse parameters, a simple pulse compressor can be constructed. This was first demonstrated by Mollenauer et al. Controlling the Electrical Transport Properties of Nanocontacts to Nanowires four large cylinder layers to approximate the hemispherical shape and three smaller cylindrical layers to mimic the shape at the base near the interface Figure 3c.
The second electrical contact, de fi ned as Ohmic, was assumed to be at the base of the nanowire, nm from the Au interface. The thermionic emission current was calculated taking into account the surface recombination velocity, static dipole e ff ects, a fi eld dependent barrier lowering originating from the image force, and band-to- band recombination.
There is no dependence on the absolute. The modulation depth can be increased by increasing the QD surface density, increasing the number of QD absorbing layers, or decreasing the inhomogeneous broadening of QDs. It is found that as the applied reverse voltage increases the slow recovery time constants decrease. Under the assumption that the carrier lifetime for all QD states and the characteristic Auger recombination times are constant for all above parameters, it is found that the slow recovery time constants increase by increasing the QD surface density, number of QD absorbing layers, and decreasing the inhomogeneous broadening.
From this point of view, Al 2 O 3 is also an attractive dielectric. Interest in porous semiconductor matrices permeated by an electrolyte solution containing dye and redox couples has been stimulated by their reports. Under the standard test condition, energy conversion efficiency of active area was achieved to 5.

The electronic band structure is an energy schema to describe the conductivity of con- ductors, insulators, and semiconductors. The schema consists of two energy bands va- lence and conduction band and the band gap. The valence electrons - which serve as Page 2 Conductors - Insulators -. Metals, Semiconductors, and Insulators Metals have free electrons and partially filled valence bands, therefore they are highly conductive a. Semimetals have their highest band filled. This filled band, however, overlaps with the next higher band, therefore they are conductive but with slightly higher resistivity than normal metals b. Examples: arsenic, bismuth, and antimony.

As is obvious from previous work on semiconductor photoelectrochemistry, single junction semiconductors do not provide either the required maximum photovoltage or a high photocurrent for solar water splitting, which is required for efficient stand-alone devices.
