Efficiency Enhancement of Perovskite Solar Cells with Plasmonic Nanoparticles: A Simulation Study
Recently, hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites have been extensively studied due to their promising optical properties with relatively low-cost and simple processing. However, the perovskite solar cells have some low optical ...
Static-Aligned Piezoelectric Poly (Vinylidene Fluoride) Electrospun Nanofibers/MWCNT Composite Membrane: Facile Method
Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) piezoelectric electrospun nanofibers have been intensively used for sensing and actuation applications in the last decade. However, in most cases, random PVDF piezoelectric nanofiber mats ...
Piezoresponse, Mechanical, and Electrical Characteristics of Synthetic Spider Silk Nanofibers
This work presents electrospun nanofibers from synthetic spider silk protein, and their application as both a mechanical vibration and humidity sensor. Spider silk solution was synthesized from minor ampullate silk protein ...
Reduced erbium-doped ceria nanoparticles: one nano-host applicable for simultaneous optical down- and up-conversions
This paper introduces a new synthesis procedure to form erbium-doped ceria nanoparticles (EDC NPs) that can act as an optical medium for both up-conversion and down-conversion in the same time. This synthesis process results ...
Piezoelastic PVDF/TPU Nanofibrous Composite Membrane: Fabrication and Characterization
Poly (vinylidene fluoride) nanofibers (PVDF NFs) have been extensively used in energy harvesting applications due to their promising piezoresponse characteristics. However, the mechanical properties of the generated fibers ...
