Effect of Air-Flow and Solvent Annealing on Active Layer for Organic Perovskite Solar Cells
Tatsuo Mori

Organic perovskite solar cells are one of attractive solar cells in the viewpoint of low cost and comparatively high power conversion efficiency. They easily influence the fabrication process. In this study, the air-flow process to perovskite active layer and to solvent annealing are introduced. And the air-flow process is effective for manufacturing high-performance devices. Key Word—Organic Perovskite Solar Cells, Air-Flow, Solvent annealing, Crystal Domain.

Tsung-Yin Tsai Award Candidate A novel design of intermediate band solar cell with multi-layer MoS2 nanoribbons
Tsung-Yin Tsai;Shuo-Fan Chen;Yuh-Renn Wu

MoS2 armchair nanoribbon structures has been found to form middle bandgap, which has the lowest energy states at X-valley. This will prevent carrier to recombine with hole in the valence band, which would be an excellent material in Intermediate solar cell. The optimized performance of this structures has been investigated.

Govindasamy Madhaiyan Award Candidate Self-Powered Ultrasensitive Gas Sensor Based on Bilayered-Metal-Capped Organic Diode
Govindasamy Madhaiyan;Hsiao-Wen Zan;Hong-Cheu Lin;Chao-Hsuan Chen;Hsin-Fei Meng;Ping-Hung Yeh

We Proposed a sensitive gas sensor with bilayered metal capped diode to deliver response to 100-ppb ammonia at 0.5 V. The bilayer metal successfully forms numerous pores to allow the gas penetration and realize the ppb-regime. Finally, the self-powered sensor is demonstrated by connecting with an OPV device.

Yue-Chieh Yang Award Candidate Photovoltaic Performance of Textured Silicon Solar Cell Using Indium Nanoparticles Embedded within SiNX/SiO2 Double-Layers Antireflection Coating
Wen-Jeng Ho;Yue-Chieh Yang;Jheng-Jie Liu

Indium nanoparticles (In NPs) embedded within a double-layer (SiNX/SiO2) anti-reflection coating to enhance photovoltaic performances of the textured silicon solar cells under various incident illuminated-angles are demonstrated. The conversion-efficiency enhanced 7.07% (from 13.85% to 14.83%) under AM 1.5G normal simulation was obtained, compared to the reference cell without In NPs.

Wei-Chen Tsao Award Candidate Compact solar for III-V CPV
Wei-Chen Tsao;Ciou-Chon Zeng;Chih-Ming Wang

The aim of this experiment is to develop a micro-CPV solar cell under both direct illumination and scattering illumination, simultaneously. For simultaneously harvesting the direct and scattering solar light, a low cost solar cell is applied for harvesting scattering light while III-V solar cell is utilized for harvesting the direct-illumination.
