Perspective of nanomaterials in solar cell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Reducing cost and increasing efficiency are the principal drivers in photovoltaic technology. Nanotechnology has shown particular promise since it can offer solution to both problems either by improving the existing technologies or helping to replace them with alternative solutions. Nanomaterials can contribute from different ways. The solar cell designs and enhancements play important role in their performance and categorized by the type of nanostructure utilized. This review paper focuses on different possible contribution of nanomaterials in solar cell and describes their promising role and their obstacles.
