Carbon Nanotubes for Enhancing the Efficiency of Solar Cells
Abstract: The modern world is continually experiencing volatility in energy costs, in addition to ever-increasing environmental concerns besides tight budget climate. These pressures have helped to incite development of long-term strategies that guarantee reliable, cost-effective and sustainable energy supply for the large scale solar production systems in a more efficiency-guaranteeing fashion. The continuing pressure on available resources calls for sustainability in the use of these resources and maximization of efficiency in environmentally-friendly energy sources such as solar energy. Large scale solar production systems have become vital alternatives in helping to foster the agenda of sustainable development that has currently become the focal point of increased attention in all sectors, including the energy sector. Bearing all these into consideration, the main aim of this research study will be to investigate how efficiency of solar cells can be enhanced through the use of carbon nanotubes.
Keywords: Carbon nanotubes, CNT-Silicon cells, Solar cells, crystalline solar cell, amorphous solar cell and thin film solar cells
