New Integration Approaches for Highly Arrayed Nanostructures for Organic/Inorganic Solar Cells
We developed a new process technology that can make full use of the porous template while structural dimensions such as spacing and thickness of nanostructures are also precisely controlled. Particularly, our technologies enable highly arrayed nanostructures having various material combinations such as insulators, semiconductors, and/or metals. In addition, they allow for large-scale production of such highly arrayed nanostructures. Currently, we are integrating highly arrayed nanostructures into glass or plastic substrates. Our nanofabrication technologies will provide a new class of highly arrayed, multi-walled nanostructures suitable for many optoelectronic applications including new-generation solar cells.
