Nanostructured Black Metals May Help Develop More Efficient Photovoltaics
The MED research team recently published their black metals research results in a cover-page article in the May issue of Applied Physics Letters titled “Plasmonic Black Metals in Resonant Nanocavities.” Authored by MED physicist and research team member Mihail Bora, the article details the work of the nanophotonics and plasmonics research team led by LLNL engineer Tiziana Bond. It describes the team’s concept of black metals, which are not classic metals but can be thought of as an extension of the black silicon concept. When silicon is treated in a certain way, such as being roughened at the nanoscale level, it traps light by multiple reflections, increasing its solar absorption. This gives the silicon a black surface that’s able to better trap the full sun’s wavelength spectrum. Similarly, black metals are produced by some sort of random nanostructuring — either in gold or silver — without guaranteeing a full, reliable and repeatable full solar absorption. However, Bond’s team developed a method to improve and control the absorption efficiency and basically turn the metals as black as they want, allowing them to increase, on demand, the absorption of a higher quantity of solar wavelengths. Her team built nanopillar structures that are trapping and absorbing all the relevant wavelengths of the entire solar spectrum. “Our article was picked for the cover story of Applied Physics Letters because it represents cutting-edge work in the area of plasmonics, the broadband operation obtained with a clear design and its implication for the photovoltaic yield,” Bond said.

crystalsol and Forster partner on BIPV flexible photovoltaic film production
Forster says its commitment reflects the promising market potential of crystalsol’s unique product: a new type of flexible photovoltaic film based on a crystalline semiconductor powder with outline and dimension being easily custom-designed to meet the specific requirements of building elements. The flexible photovoltaic film can either be opaque or transparent and can truly be integrated into facade- and rooftop-elements such as glass or tiles. Besides integration into the building envelope, the film can also be used for consumer products like mobile chargers, bags, and clothes. Core innovations of crystalsol’s technology are the unique light-absorbing active layer made of crystalline semiconductor powder and the low-cost roll-to-roll production process, which ensures high throughput and yield. The crystalline semiconductor powder has a typical size of about 40 m arranged in a single layer fixed by a polymer film. The applied powder is made of the abundant materials copper, zinc, tin, sulphur and selenium (CZTS), avoiding the use of rare and expensive materials such as indium or tellurium. Forster, with extensive experience in high-throughput production such as roll-to-roll screen printing and lamination, is an ideal partner for crystalsol’s production. Already in 2011 the Lower Austrian-based company decided to enter the field of renewable energy and commenced an R&D cooperation with crystalsol. Now Forster and crystalsol decided to intensify their cooperation and signed the production partnership which will ultimately result in an accelerated market entry for crystalsol’s flexible BIPV film. To support the production ramp-up, crystalsol recently extended its management team by adding Axel Neisser as CTO.

First photovoltaic solar system installed in Msheireb Downtown Doha
Wind energy can now produce nearly 10,000MWh in the UK in a day, compared to the 16,000MWh that PV cells produced on one sunny day last week. That’s from 450,000 solar roofs on individual houses, mainly. The German Republic managed 40% of its daily need (daytime hours only) on 7th July, while all of that UK effort managed a mere 6% on the same day. Alan Simpson has been fact-finding on German credentials for the solar industry. In his opinion, “Germany is now “light years” ahead of the UK and benefitting. Within a decade, many German towns and cities could be substantially ‘off-grid’ and will be taking the grid system out of the hands of the private energy companies.” For the UK, the sunshine this year is a record July offering, although obviously the figures have yet to be finalised. Perhaps the south-facing PV cells they have will soon become more efficient, so that west or even east facing rays can be used to spread the capture throughout the day, just as Germany is planning west-facing installations. Several ways of tracking the sun have been established now in various locations.

The installation of the solar panels reflects Msheireb Properties’ ongoing commitment to sustainable development in line with Qatar’s National Vision for 2030. The roof-mounted photovoltaic modules will supply a portion of the electricity needs of the buildings within Phase 1 of the landmark development. The buildings within phase 1Aare being installed with 2,072photovoltaic panels and 37 inverters, feeding a total of 463.4 kWp (kilowatts at peak power) of electricity and will feed directly into the electrical grid of the development, thus significantly reducing the buildings’ carbon emissions. Photovoltaic solar panels use sunlight to generate electricity through the photovoltaic effect -the creation of an electric current within certain materials when those materials are exposed to light. Solar panels are designed to capture this electricity so it can be harnessed. Eng.
