We demonstrate the fabrication of nano-sized surface textured crystalline silicon by a metal-assisted electroless etching method with nitric acid added as the hole injection agent. This method generates randomly shaped cone-like structures that offer a clear advantage over nanowires by enabling straightforward passivation with standard techniques. Average reflection values as low as 3% have been achieved. Optimizing the thickness of anti-reflective coatings, the doping depth and the screen-printed metal fir...

High enhancement of fluorescence emission, improved fluorophore photostability, and significant reduction of fluorescence lifetimes have been obtained from high aspect ratio (>100) silver (Ag) nanowires. These quantities are found to depend on the surface loading of Ag nanowires on glass slides, where the enhancement of fluorescence emission increases with the density of nanowires. The surface loading dependence was attributed to the creation of intense electric fields around the network of Ag nanowires and...

Photovoltaics with monolithically connected tandem architectures have the potential to achieve high efficiencies owing to enhanced spectral absorption and reduced thermal losses. To achieve this, photoactive layers with complementary absorption and interconnecting layers, which are robust, transparent, and energetically suitable, are essential. Here, we investigate a strategy to create an efficient, highly transparent, ohmic, and chemically robust interconnecting layer based on atomic layer-deposited tin ox...
